The Firefighters Prayer
When I 'm called to duty, God Whatever flames may
rage, Give me the strength to save a life whatever be
the age. Help me embrace a 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 to give the best I can, to guard
my neighbor and protect his property. And if according
to my fate I am to fall to flames I cannot douse,
Please bless with your protecting hand my children
and my spouse.
