Firefighter's 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 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 your will

I am to give my life,

Please bless with your protecting hand

My children and my wife.
