The Firefighter's Prayer
When I am called 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 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
