WAITT - Purity Prayers (& other assorted goodies)
A good place to start when making a promise of commitment is in asking the question, "Why Choose to Wait?"

Purity Pledge



This is a great question, surrounded in controversy and debate ... Your Holy Father will always love you and is very proud of these hard decisions you make for yourself. Our Holy Bible provides a wonderful resource of teaching and readings that discuss the issue of purity.

1 Tim 4:12 -- "Set an example for others in Speech, in Life, in Love, in Faith, in Purity."

Prov 22:11 -- "He who loves a pure heart and whose speech is gracious will have the king for his friend."

1 Cor 13:4 -- "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud..."

Risk of NOT Waiting - Pregnancy

Sex, last time we checked, can lead to pregnancy. Pregnancy can be a wonderful event ... You and I would not be here after all if it was not for a pregnancy. But truthfully, not all pregrancies are well "thought out". An unexpected pregnancy for a young couple outside of marriage will certainly impact dreams and plans for the future.  Millions of unplanned pregnancies each year result in abortion ... sometimes leaving the young woman unable to have children later in life.

Reward of Waiting: Confidence

With a commitment to wait, confidence can now be reinforced through the fact that your identity is your own and no one else's. You are in charge! You are loved and wanted for the person you are and by your good works.

Risk of NOT Waiting: Disease

Now, if lucky enough to avoid an enexpected pregnancy, sex outside of marriage can lead to incredible health risks including a wide variety of STDs. STDs can impact your health and hte health of your future spouse.

Reward of Waiting: Your "Future" Spouse

Nothing can bind a couple in marriage than sharing in this bond with one another. A special bond shared with only this one special person that cannot be broken or claimed by another.

Ring History

The ring's shape, a circle, has been used in countless examples of continuity throughout the years. After all, a circle has no beginning and no end - continuing on and on. A ring is the shape of the sun and of the full moon ... the very things that help to sustain a balanced life.

For millennium, ancient cultures have used a circle / ring as a symbol of unity, and eternity. Today, the ring holds many of the same traditions and importance. We wear rings of special commitment upn the third finger of the left hand thanks to the Roman culture. The Roman's once believed that this finger is closest to the "Vein of Love" ... a vein thought to lead directly to the heart.



Ring History






The "Purity Ring" -- Also often referred to as an Abstinence Ring, a Promise Ring, or a Chastity Ring

A purity ring is a ring worn as an outword symbol of one's commitment to refrain from having sex (thus remain a virgin) until married. This is a decision not taken lightly by the wearer and is often worn with great pride. Couples often make this commitment together and wear similar, or even matching, purity ring styles.

Typically the purity ring is worn on the left hand ring finger and is often included in the wedding ceremony when both bride and groom exchange their purity rings at the alter for their wedding bands.

There is really no "one" particular style of purity ring, wearers simply choose styles / designs of their liking as it remains their personal symbol and reminder. Today it is popular for someone to select a style without "purity" words/phrasing on the band so the ring is personal to the commitment they have made.

Many specific religious groups such as Baptist, Assembly of God, Lutheran, Catholic (and many others) teach classes about living a healthy lifestyle and often include purity rings in their ceremonies and "purity ball" events.

Purity rings make great gifts but should always be presented with a clear explaination of "what the ring represents".

Second Time Virginity?

Heb 13:4  "Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral."

Once someone is no longer a virgin, they cannot simply get it back again (the human body does not work that way). However, some people wear their purity rings as a symbol of their "recommitment" to a pure, healthy, holy lifestyle. In Christ, all things are anew. Titus 3:5 says "he saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit.

Forgiveness can always be sought for what has taken place in the past and begin today with a clean heart and spirit! Many of our visitors come to us with heavy hearts - heavy with decisions made in the past. Many find great peace in seeking forgiveness from their Holy Father, themselves and in the relationshps they now and may one day hold. It is never too late to make a change. 

Living purely takes hard work. A lifestyle that requires giving up sexual entanglements that endanger our relationships may seem straightforward, but can be a very difficult path to follow.

Our Bible offers this encouragement: "Struggle against sin using the power of the Holy Spirit. Throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles and run with perseverance the race marked out for us." Heb 12:1
