A Fireman's Prayer
When I am called to duty, God
Wherever Flames may rage,
Give me 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 give the best in me,
To guard my every neighbor
And protect their property. And if according to your will
I should lose my life,
Please bless with your protecting hand
My children and my wife. Author A.W. "Smokey" Linn


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.
