The Firefighters' Prayer

When I am called to duty,
whenever flames may rage,
give me the strength to save a life,
no matter what their age.

Please help me to embrace a 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 neighbour and
protect his property.

And if according to my fate,
I am to lose my life,

Dear Lord…
Bless my children and my wife
