    Hey sis..

    I definitely think that the first thing you should do is pray and see if this is what God will have you to do.

    Secondly, the people or persons who requested you to give this "word" should definitely make themselves available to work with you and be more clear of the direction they want you to speak on...they should'nt leave you out there..

    Also, why are you doing this? What is God directing you to do? etc.. just ask yourself those things.

    After you pray seek scripture that speaks towards being a christian peroid. It doesn't matter if you are in highschool, college, work, or ect. A christian must act according to what the scriptures say. Now what do you want to address from the scriptures about what Christ requires of a Christian. For instance do you want to talk about "being in the world but not of the world" , "Christian Love", "Forgiveness", "Prayer". Then pray on how these topics can be applied in a highschool enviroment. You can use an outline format to help you with what your going to say.

    Look up keywords in the bible at: http://www.biblegateway.com/keyword/

    Bible Topics this site will give you an idea on how to do a lay out on a topic.

    I have pray to God about this. I really have don't know if God wants me to do rhis. But my preacher told me that God want me to do children ministries. I was surpries at that and confuse because she told me that not God. I really do need help with that. I say to myself "well God do YOU want me to do this". A person in my church is helping me with that. She says she will give me some scriptures. Thanks invisible man I will look at those sites. Thanks Psalmist and Sightgiver. Plz pray for me. I really want to know if God want me to do this.

    Practice. Tell a friend (or friends) what you plan to talk about. Say it aloud a couple times. Get comfortable with your material and leave the door open for the Holy Spirit to work.

    First you want to pray and ask God what he will have for you to say. You don't want to approach a crowd unprepared so practice with some of your GodIntelligent friends or relatives. Then you would want to be patient and let God lead you. I do minister all the time before people and I sometimes get nervous but I remember it is for him. I focus always on him and he has never failed me. Keep your mind on him and the purpose and you will not fail. Fear is not of God, So don't fear.

    Did you ever "rap" in front of somebody? It's just like rapping fam!!! You just go up and give it a go.....don't think....infact don't even look in their eyes at first. Just look straight away from any faces and eyes and speak and as you get comfortable start looking at peoples faces.....and just be your self. If you get them to laugh then it might break the ice and the feeling in your stomach might go away or at least lighten up.



    Do your thing man. We got your back
