Sharpsburg Volunteer Fire Department

Fireman's Prayer

"When I am called to duty, LORD,
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
To give the best in me,
To guard my every neighbor and
Protect his property.
And if according to YOUR WILL
I am to lose my life,
Please bless with Your protecting hand
My children and my wife."
