Since any topic can be approached in multiple ways, I always make my first request to a speaker thus:
Pray for guidance as you prepare the talk - and ask specifically that you will be able to prepare a talk that will touch someone's heart. Even if 99% of the members walk away saying, "That was nice," you have succeeded perfectly if one member walks away feeling like God spoke directly to him or her through your talk.
