Fireman carrying a child

Fireman's Prayer When I am called to duty, God, wherever flames may race, Give me the strength to save some life, whatever be its age. Help me embrace a little child, before its is too late or save some older person, from the horrors 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 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. A.W. "Smokey" Linn
