Fireman’s Prayer


When I am called to duty, God,
whenever flames may rage,
give me strength to save a life
whatever be it’s age.

Help me embrace a little child
before it is to late,
or save an old person
from the horror of that fate.
Enable me to be alert
and hear the weakest shout,
to quickly and efficiently
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 my fate ….
I am to lose my life,
please bless with your protecting hand
my children and my wife.
