The Fireman's Prayer

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 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 to protect their property

And if according to your will I have to lose my life,
Please bless with your protecting hand my children and my wife.
