Fire Fighters Prayer

When I'm called to duty, God,
wherever flames may rage,
give me strength to save a life,
whatever be its age.

Help me to 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
to 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 neighbor and
protect his property.

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