Fire Fighters Prayer

A Fire Fighter's Prayer
Whenever 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 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
Put the fire out.

I want to fill my calling
And give the best in me
To guard my every neighbor
And protect his property.

And if according to Your Will
I have to lose my life
Please bless with your protecting hand
My children and my wife.
