A Fireman's Prayer

When 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 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 their 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 Fireman's Wife's Prayer

The table's set,
the meal's prepared,
our guests will soon arrive.
My husband once more
disappears with a hope
of keeping a child alive.
While waiting at
home alone, our
plans having gone awry
My first impulse
is merely to sit
right down and cry.
But soon again
I realize the
importance of my life
When I agreed to
take on the duties
of being a fireman's wife.
While there are
many drawbacks, I'll
take them in my stride,
Knowing "My Daddy saved
a life" our children can
say with pride.
The gusting winds
and raging flames may
be his final fate.
But with God's help
I can remain my
fireman's faithful mate.
