Psalm 61:1-3 A Life-Saver Prayer

My Take

DiVoran Lites


The Passion Translation (with some paraphrase)

My dear Papa, Holy Spirit, and Jesus,

Hear my prayer. Listen to my heart’s cry! No matter where I am, when I’m anxious, I cry out to you for a father’s help. 

When I’m feeble and overwhelmed by life, guide me into your glory, where I am safe and sheltered. Lord, you are a paradise of protection to me regardless of the mistakes I have made in the past. You lift me high above the fray. None of my foes can touch me when I’m held firmly in your wrap-around presence! Keep me in this glory. Let me live continually under your splendor-shadow, hiding my life in you forever.

Lord, I declare that you have placed a veil over all my wrongdoings in the past, and in the present. You have full jurisdiction over the evil one and will infuse my body, soul, and spirit with your love so that I no longer hear the devilish accusations, but think only of what is pure, good, and loving.

It is Well with my Soul

When peace like a river attendeth my way

When sorrow like sea billows roll

Whatever my lot, 

Thou hast taught me to say, 

It is well; it is well with my soul.

It is well, with my soul, it is well, it is well with my soul 

Here is a beautiful rendering of the song

DiVoran has been writing for most of her life. Her first attempt at a story was when she was seven years old and her mother got a new typewriter. DiVoran got to use it and when her dad saw her writing he asked what she was writing about. DiVoran answered that she was writing the story of her life. Her dad’s only comment was, “Well, it’s going to be a very short story.” After most of a lifetime of writing and helping other writers, DiVoran finally launched her own dream which was to write a novel of her own. She now has her Florida Springs trilogy and her novel, a Christian Western Romance, Go West available on Amazon. When speaking about her road to publication, she gives thanks to the Lord for all the people who helped her grow and learn.  She says, “I could never have done it by myself, but when I got going everything fell beautifully into place, and I was glad I had started on my dream.”
