Nine Fire Fighters Killed Charleston, S.C.

Nine Charleston firefighters were killed fighting a blaze at a furniture warehouse and this is in their honor.

The Firefighter’s Prayer:

When I am called to duty,
Whenever flames may rage,
Give me strength to save a 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
Put the fire out.
I want to fill my calling
To give the best in me
To guard my every neighbor,
protect his property.
And if according to Your will
I must answer death’s last call
Bless with Your protecting hand
My family one and all.
