The "Firefighter's Prayer"

When I am called to duty, God,
wherever flames may rage,
give me strength to save a life,
whatever be it's 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 friend and neighbor
and protect his property.

And if according to Your will
I must answer death's call,
bless with your protecting hand,
my family one and all.
