You have never had a problem presenting yourself. You have always communicated well. So as my friend communicates, will you?
When he walks into the room, present yourself to him as he presents himself and his stuff to others. Calm his heart and nurture his nerves in your hand. Make him see and hear what he should.
May every inspection that happens in that time be full of accuracy, wisdom, and practical help. Season the words of his listeners with grace, empathy, care, and truth. Bring them closer to each other and to beauty as they talk.
Grant that this presentation brings you glory. Enable it to connect with the broader bigger vision of his doctoral work in powerful, effective ways. And perfect every step in the future of this work. Bring it to pass in a ravishing way.
In Christ’s name. Amen.
