Firefighters Prayer

When I am called to duty, God
Wherever flames may rage
Give me strength to save a life
Whatever be its age.
Let 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
To give the best in me,
To guard my friend and neighbor
And protect their property.
And, if, according to your will,
I have to lose my life,
Please bless, with your protecting hand,
My family and my wife.

IN REMEMBRANCE
SEPTEMBER 11, 2001
WE WILL NEVER FORGET

May God bless you & your family today and every day.

Beautiful thought for the day, and so appropriate. I know I'll never forget and I pray that no one does. Thanks for remembering and helping others remember too.
