Firefighter's Prayer

When I am called to duty, God
Wherever flames may rage
Give me strength to save a 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
To give the best in me
To guard my friends and neighbors
And protect their property.

And if according to your will
I must answer to death's call
Bless with your protecting hand
My family one and all.
