Dear Lord,

I’m about to preach to people. People from all walks of life. People who are confused. People who are lost. People who are indifferent. People who desperately need help. 

All I ask that YOU help ME help THEM.

Help me to show the young Christian that they must abide in You.

Help me to show the gray-haired saint what a day that will be.

Help me to show the religious Pharisee that there is no difference between the small sins and the big ones.

Help me to show those who trust in their money that they can’t serve two masters.

Help me to show those who feel trapped in the wrong body that they are fearfully and wonderfully made.

Help me to show those who were abused that You are a shelter in the time of storm.

Help me to show the bitter the magnitude of Your forgiveness.

Help me to show the atheist that the heavens declare the glory of God.

Help me to show those living riotously that the wages of sin is death.

Help me to show the struggling single mom that Your yoke is easy and Your burden is light.

Help me to show the fatherless child that You will never leave or forsake them.

Help me to show the prodigal that You will draw nigh to them if they draw nigh to you.

Help me to show the hypocrite that Your eyes are everywhere beholding the evil and the good.

Help me show the legalist that their rule-keeping religiosity is as filthy rags.

Help me to show the cheating spouse that one cannot take fire in their bosom and not be burned.

Help me to show the ungrateful, angry teenager that it always right to honor their parents.

Help me to show the unemployed that all things really are working together for good.

Help me to show the disabled that they are the crown of Your  creation.

Help me to show the suicidal that You have an amazing plan for their life.

Help me to show the superficial that favor is deceitful and beauty is vain.

Help me to show the self-conscious that they are created in the image of Almighty God.

Help me to show the apathetic that there will that there will be no excuses on judgement day.

Help me show the hurting that You are a healer.

Help me to show the discouraged that You will lift up the hands that hang down.

Help me to show the lost that they can be found.

Lord, grant me wisdom. 

Help ME help THEM.

Amen.

The Honest Preacher
