The Fireman's Prayer


When I am called to duty, God,
Wherever flames may rage, Give
me the strength to save some 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

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 and to give
the best in me, to guard my every neighbor
and protect his property.
And if according to your will I have
to lose my life, Please bless with
your protecting hand my children
and my wife.
