A Prayer for the Mission Workers
By Mary Elizabeth Humphreys
Father, within my peaceful home tonight
Resting secure, I lift my voice to Thee,
In simple, earnest, heartfelt prayer
For Thy workers wheresoever they be;
Let their feet wander not from the narrow way;
Give them the strength Thy work to do;
Shield them from temptation and from harm,
Keep their hearts ever pure and true.
Be with them Father, in the night’s deep gloom;
Walk close beside them through the busy day,
That they may know Thou art with them,
And theirs the safe and blessed way.
They are but mortal, flesh is weak,
Oh, draw them closely unto Thee,
Thy hand their guide, Thy love,
A refuge safe, where they may flee.
