Dear ______,

Do you have a Bible? If not, we can get you one if you want one. Have you ever tried to read the Bible through? It’s not an easy task. I have done it one time, but it took me a year. I do try to read at least a verse in my Bible every day. Somedays I read a lot more or focus on a particular book or passage of scripture.

My favorite way to read the Bible is a little bit of Psalms and Proverbs every day. In fact, there are exactly 31 chapters in the book of Proverbs, so if you read one chapter in Proverbs every day, you can read the book of Proverbs in one month. I used to read the book of Proverbs over and over again – a chapter each day, once a month.

Reading the Bible every day is like taking a multi-vitamin for your soul. It keeps you balanced and gives you the strength you need to make it through the day without depleting all of your energy.

I hope you will consider starting this “One-A-Day” routine with me. As we hunger and thirst for righteousness, we shall be filled. The Bible is the source to fill our souls with life and health.

Praying for you in Jesus’ Name,

Rachael Hartman
Matthew 5:6

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.
