A Firefigther's Prayer

I posted the Police Officer's Prayer the other day and it made me wonder if there were one for firefighters. I was looking online and found this picture with the poem and I loved it and decided to share it too! (I also posted this on my other blog so if you read both I apologize for the duplicate posts.)

A Firefighter's Prayer

When I am called to duty, God,
Whenever flames may rage,
Give me 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 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
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
Those that I loved in life.

I have personally seen the blessing that firefighters are. I am proud to say my dad is a firefighter. He is one of the best people and best firefigher's that I know. He works with some amazing people. Please thank a firefighter if you see one. They do put their lives on the line to serve us.
