Draw Near PrayerLoving God, please draw near to me as I call on you. When the weight of the world drags me down, let me know that you are near. You say that you fulfill the desires of all those who put their trust in you. Lord, I trust that I can find satisfaction and fulfillment in you. Hear my cry and rescue me God. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

Not Forsaken PrayerHeavenly Father, bring peace to my mind and my heart as I struggle through discontent. Help me to count my blessings and find rest in you. I take hold of the promises in your word when you say “Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you”. Help me to live in the light of those words Lord, with the confidence that you have not left my side and you never will. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

Comfort in Suffering PrayerFaithful God, remember your promise to give your people hope. I need your hope when I feel hopeless. My comfort in suffering is this: that your promises will preserve my life. You have never broken a promise. You have never gone back on your word. Soothe me with the certainty of your faithful love. Help me to know that you will never turn your back on me. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

Remove my Fear PrayerHeavenly Father, help me when I feel afraid. When I feel surrounded by trouble and pressure help me know I am surrounded by you.

Replace my fear of circumstances with faith in you, the living and active God. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

Rescue PrayerLoving Father, reach down and pull me out of these deep waters. You are my rescuer. When I experience disaster, let me lean on you and find support. When I feel abandoned, remind me that you delight in me and are leading me on a good path towards great joy. You created me, you know me better than anyone else and you know my situation inside out. You know what is best for me Lord, guide me in your ways. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

Eternal Perspective PrayerGod of eternity, as I look around me in the world I see pain, suffering and confusion. Remind me that my future is in eternity with you. One day you will wipe away every tear from every eye. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain. As I long for that day when I will dwell with you Lord, give me the peace and grace I need to live my life for you. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

Compassion and Understanding PrayerCompassionate Lord, I thank you that when I am miserable you do not turn your back on me. You know each and every tear I cry and the circumstances that caused them. When I feel like no one understands, remind me that you understand. When I feel like no one cares, remind me that you care. When it feels like the whole world is against me, help me to feel secure in the knowledge that you are for me. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

Joy Instead Of Sorrow PrayerO Lord my God, when I feel anger rising within me towards others, help me to look to you. You are slow to anger and your grace lasts a lifetime. Your grace is enough to cover my failures. When I feel despair, may I experience the reality of your word which says that weeping may last for the night, but joy comes in the morning. Help me to see the light of your love. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

Broken Hearted PrayerLord Jesus Christ, hear my cry to you. Where else can I find deliverance from my troubles? Help is only found in you. You hear me when I cry to you. When I feel broken hearted, you promised that you will be close to me in those moments of pain. When I feel crushed in spirit, you promised that you will restore my soul. Let me cling onto your promises. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

Comfort in Trouble Prayer

God of all comfort, please bring comfort to me in my time of trouble. There is no circumstance beyond your power, no person beyond your love. I ask that I would know your comforting presence. Use me, Lord, to comfort others with the comfort I have received from you. May your peace overflow in my life and bless those around me. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.


As a finalist years ago in the Miss USA pageant, I spoke about how much I wanted to be an actress, and sing. But I also told the world that I loved being informed , loved News and information, and thought it was very important to help keep others informed. After years of television, I worked in radio. I saw how the news was becoming slanted and that too few people owned too much media. The antitrust laws had all but disappeared in my opinion. I felt this was dangerous. I created a show called Straight Talk LIVE so that I could explore and broadcast both sides of stories that were controversial. I thought that the audience at home could be informed and make up their own minds about what they thought about things, once they heard all of the information. We sure need more of that type of news now with all the stations seemingly trying to tell us all what and how they want us to think.

I do love the immediacy of news in radio and of course in live TV, too. With the internet now, all news can be immediate. But is it true honest news ? That’s a bogey. Americans deserve to be completely informed and they should not be forced to rely on slanted, opinionated or confusing information. Personally I dig, call and investigate as much as possible before I speak out. I want to know the truth. It’s hard to find.

I would love to have the opportunity to serve this region of the country now and be useful to the people here.

I will do my best to perform all responsibilities in my new working life, whatever it turns out to be, to the best of my ability.
