Our thoughts and prayers go out to the hundreds of Fire, Police, EMS, and military personnel tragically killed in action in NYC and Washington



  A FIREMAN'S PRAYER
WHEN I'M CALLED TO DUTY GOD
WHERE EVER FLAMES MAY RAGE,
GIVE ME STRENGTH TO SAVE A LIFE
WHATEVER BE IT'S 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,
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 EVERY NEIGHBOR
AND TO PROTECT HIS PROPERTY.


AND IF ACCORDING TO MY FATE,
I AM TO LOSE MY LIFE,
PLEASE BLESS WITH YOUR PROTECTING HAND
MY CHILDREN AND MY WIFE
