It's not enough to be skilled with words or know the Bible. It takes the anointing of the Holy Spirit to press the truths of God into men's hearts.
Ask God to take the words of the preacher and make them real as only He can. When God speaks, things are created, hearts are changed.
Lu 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor.
Lord, You have the name that is above all names. You are Lord forever and there is no one who can challenge Your authority and power. You rule forever and ever, and there is no end to Your Kingdom.
