Firefighter’s Prayer

When I am called to duty, God, wherever flames may rage, give me strength to save a 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, quickly and efficiently to put the fire out.
I want to fill my calling, to give the best in me, to guard my friend and neighbor, and protect his property.
And if according to your will must answer death’s call, bless with your protecting hand, my family one and all…Amen -Firefighter Kevin Bell Did That and Lost His Life Doing So.-
