Fireman's Prayer

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 the fate Enable me to be alert and Hear the weakest shout and quickly and efficiently to put the fire out

I want to fulfil my calling and to give the best in me to guard my every neighbour and protect his property and if according to your will I have to lose my life please bless with your protecting hands my children and my wife. Amen.
