We are not only told to ask God to create opportunities for us to speak, but we also need to pray that we will have the insight to speak it plainly (Colossians 4:3).
When preparing a speech it is good to practice it aloud in front of a mirror or an imaginary audience. The awkwardness of the speech becomes glaring while we still have an opportunity to change it. Maybe it wouldn’t be such a bad idea to practice sharing the gospel.
Through prayer and study God will teach us to speak in a manner that will help others understand the gospel (1 Peter 3:15).
