Spiritual prep before my presentation
Recently at work, I had to give a presentation to about ten people as the culmination of a long-term project. I had worked hard to make the project fulfill all the requirements, and had also worked hard to make the presentation complete and clear. I felt confident and prepared.
Shortly before the presentation, a few co-workers suggested that I should have someone from my department there for support. There had been some murmurs that some of the people attending this presentation wanted to derail the project and were planning to find ways to block it. It was expected that there would be finger-pointing to pass blame for why the project had taken so long to complete, and my co-workers thought I should have someone on my side rather than letting it be ten against one. I respected my co-workers’ intent and asked someone to join me for the presentation. But I also immediately “went to work” in prayer to prepare spiritually.
