A Firefighter's Prayer
This prayer is dedicated to all those that have gone before us and to those who will follow. . .
When I am
call to duty, God wherever flames may rage,
Give me the strength to save some life
whatever be it's age.
Help me embrace a little child before it is too late, or
save an 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 his property,
and if according to my fate, I lose my life this day,
Please bless with your protecting hand, my family, this I pray.
