Firefighters Prayer


When I am called to duty, God
Whenever flames may rage
Give me the strength to save some life
Whatever be its age
Help me embrace a little child
Before it is to late
Or save and older person from
The horror of that fate
Enable me to be alert and
Hear the weakest shout
And quickly and efficiently
To put the fire out
I want to fill my calling and
To give the best in me
To guard my every neighbor
And protect their property
And if according to your will
I have to lose my life
Please bless with your protecting hand
My children and my wife
