Letter #19 to a Woman in Prison

Letter #19 of 36. Each woman who attends the prison ministry weekend will receive a handwritten letter from each volunteer. Please pray for us as we prepare for the weekend.


Dear ______,

Have you ever felt misunderstood? I have, many times. No matter how hard we try, there will always be times we are misread and misunderstood.

We can try to put our best face forward, and be as real as possible, but even then, we can’t control our reputations. Gossip is a terrible thing to endure. So is jealousy. Sadly, we can’t control the way other people feel about us, if they are intimidated by us, or if they project their own issues onto us.

There is One person, though, who will always see us and love us for who we are, and that is Jesus. He knows your heart and every thought, and He loves you.

Pray this prayer when you feel misunderstood. “Jesus, sometimes I feel helpless to change the way other people think about me. Thank You for always seeing the real me, and loving me right where I am. Help me to find my identity in You. I am Your daughter. I am blessed. I am redeemed.”

Praying for you in Jesus’ Name,

Rachael Hartman


I’m raising money to help pay for this weekend. $150 will pay for one female inmate to attend the Kairos prison ministry I’m volunteering at.

If you would like to donate to the prison ministry, it needs to be in the form of a check made out to: KPMI (which stands for Kairos Prison Ministry International). In the memo put: Pulaski, GA. You can mail it to me, Rachael Hartman, at: PO Box 501, Bloomingdale, GA 31302. If you want a tax credit, include your full name and address on a note and they will mail you a tax receipt.

Thank you so much for your support and prayers! Every $5 goes to pay for a meal for one of the inmates that weekend. The meal will have a tag with your name on it. And we will have a paper chain link that will also have your names on a link to show that you have prayed for and invested into the weekend. Praise God for what He will do! Please keep me in your prayers as I will be speaking on Obstacles to Accepting God’s Grace, and sharing part of my own testimony in the process.

To add your name to the prayer chain (which will be visualized with a paper link chain – your name will be on one link) please leave a comment below. And please pray for Kairos #40 ~ Pulaski Women’s State Prison in Georgia. Kairos weekend happening August 25-28, 2016.
