The Power Of Prayer Shines Through In Trace’s Sacred Song ‘All I Ask For Anymore’

Trace Adkins has never been shy when it comes to sharing his faith. Elements of Trace’s faith can be found throughout his songs, but none more so than “All I Ask For Anymore.” 

Written by Casey Beathard and Tim James, “All I Ask For Anymore” is told from the perspective of a man looking back on his life. He remembers the things he used to pray to God for when he was younger: a home run, a new truck, a bunch of money. But as he goes on, he reveals that he no longer prays for those things.

Now that he’s older, the man shares that all of his prayers focus on his family and their well-being. As he sings, “When I bow my head tonight, there’ll be no me myself and I. Just watch my wife and kids please lord. That’s all I ask for any more.

The powerful message behind “All I Ask For Anymore” resonated with a lot of fans. It peaked at the 14th spot on the country chart and managed to make its way on the Billboard Hot 100.

A music video was also released for the song, which added a whole new layer of emotion. In the video, Adkins can be seen standing in front of a fence as he sings about the things that are important to him in life. Other people slowly start to join him, but it isn’t revealed who they are waiting for until the end.

Once you see that part of the video, you’re sure to break into tears. Go ahead and check it out below.

If you liked “All I Ask For Anymore,” then you’ll certainly like Adkins’ new single, “Watered Down.” The two are quite similar, because like its predecessor, “Watered Down” is all about slowing things down a bit as you proceed through adulthood.

You can catch the lyric video for “Watered Down” below, which Adkins filmed on his farm outside of Nashville.
