    Prayer for fallen firefighters

    Everyone, please say a prayer for the 19 fallen firefighters and their families in Arizona. All 19 were killed in one terrible incident during a wildfire outside Phoenix (I believe). This just points out the inherent dangers to firefighters when these highly trained wildfire specialists can suddenly get caught in a life threatening situation.

    This is the largest single loss of life in the fire service since 9/11. It is truly a sad day for those of us in the fire service and for all America!

    Firemanís Prayer


    When I am called to duty, God
    whenever flames may rage,
    Give me the strength to save some life
    Whatever be its age.

    Help me to embrace a little child
    Before itís too late,
    Or some 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 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,
    Please bless with Your protecting hand
    My children and my wife
