A Fire Fighter's Prayer

When I am called to duty, God,
Whenever 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
Put the fire out.

I want to fill my calling
To give the best in me
To guard my friend and 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.
