A new song from Tyler Castleton, Wayne Burton, and Anna Richey takes you into the heart of a missionary as they plead with the Lord to magnify their efforts.
The song, A Missionary’s Prayer, was released on Anna Richey’s YouTube channel, where she explains what this song means to her personally.
“When Tyler asked me to sing and record this song, I was very excited. While I was driving to the recording studio and listening to the song, I was thinking about what this song meant to me and how I could connect with it the best.
The lines “keep the ones whom I have loved, in your watchful care” and “faithful til my work is done, then bring me safely home” really stood out to me.
I thought about missionaries who have left their homes for 18 months – 2 years, but then I started thinking about my sweet daddy who had passed away. I started thinking about his life mission while he still alive on earth.
As we started recording the song, I could not stop the tears from streaming down my face. My heart burst as I thought about my dad singing this song, praying to his Heavenly Father to watch over his family because my dad is now safely home.
keep the ones whom I have loved, in your watchful care
I hope this song means as much to you as it does to me. We are all involved in missionary service by sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with those around us. God bless those who are “publishing peace” throughout the world.”
