Okay, this is the big day for me. A few months back I was asked to lead a purity conference for the girls at New Life. I can not tell you how inadequate I feel to fill this need, but I knew what a difference it could make in the lives of these girls, on so many levels, so I accepted, despite the fact that I’m not a “speaker”. Sing in front of people, for sure, act even, but speak, no not really.
Pray that God would give me the right words to say to these girls, and pray that it would penetrate their hearts, that they would be compelled and empowered to hold on to their purity. Pray for God’s protection of their purity. Pray that those girls that have unfortunately already experienced a violation of their physical bodies, would understand that purity is in their hearts, and from God, and that He alone can heal and restore.
Pray that I would really connect with these girls as I lead this time. I want to know their stories, I want them to realize that New Life is a safe place for them to share, and ask questions. There will be a language barrier, and I’m sure I’ll need to use a translator. Pray that despite that, I would gain a real understanding of where they are on this matter, and what they need to hear, and see from me.
