Prayer Needed

Yesterday we found out that our pastor has the West Nile Virus.
He's been ill for a week and found out sometime in the past few days that he has West Nile.
He will be going in today for more tests.
This is what was posted on Facebook last week(August 15th)
"Pastor David was feeling poorly last night when he came home from work. During the night he started running a fever and had body aches and chills. Summer flu? Please pray for his recovery and that whatever this is will not spread through our church and community. He will not be out on visitation tonight."
Please pray for Pastor Michael David& Prayer Baptist Church.
I'll try to update ya'll in a few days.
Thanks for the prayers (;
Good bye and God Bless!

Purity-the state or degree of being pure.Pure?What do you mean by that? Pure in what? How you dress?How you act?
Purity is a virtue,something to treasure and guard.Purity in your life starts with a choice.Yes or no? Should you keep yourself pure and strive to live a God-honoring life?Or should you just "go with the flow",who cares about what God wants?
As I was researching purity for this essay,it soon became clear that there mixed opinions on this subject.The two opinions that were the most obvious were(basically)1.Purity is awesome and a wonderful thing to try to live by. and 2.Purity is overrated and useless.
Is purity truly overrated? Is the idea of living a life that is pure really so "old-fashioned" ? Is purity really so un-important in this day and time that we can just blow it off as worthless? That's what it seems like! Look around. Purity is a far off concept to this world.Whether it's godly purity,sexual purity or purity in the way we dress.It's just not done anymore.
"It's to hard","It's not fun"," None of my friends do it".Purity is not always easy,convenient or even fun but it is ALWAYS worth it.Maybe it's not "cool" to some(like maybe your friends) but it's absolutely worth it,to live your life pure before God.
Don't try to find out how far you can go,but rather determine how you can best honor God with your life,your mind and your body.
Living your life pure,as God wants you to be,you have the ability to be a "light."Let your light so shine before men,that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven"(Matthew 5:16).
Remember- Living a life that is pure starts with a choice. Yes or no? Every day.

This was an essay I wrote a few months ago for my ninth grade English class.

My brother Nathan told me this afternoon that " I am kinda pretty girl but I would be an ugly guy". Ummm....was that supposed to be a compliment? lol
Don't you just love it when someone "compliments" you but it could also be an insult? My siblings are very good at doing things like that. Like that key example above.....haha
I just love my family
