October is Fire Prevention Month and even though this month is nearly over, I wanted to dedicate this to all our local firefighters who work so diligently to put their own lives in danger to save the life of another.
When I am called to duty, God, whenever flames my rage;
Give me the strength to save some life, whatever be the 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 put the fire out.
I want to feel my calling and give the best in me,
To guard my every neighbor and 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.
