A Fire Chief’s Prayer

Thank You Father for placing me in the responsible position as Fire Chief and for the many men and women that You have placed under my charge… Keep my eye focussed on You Lord, as there are many duties and responsibilities that require me to remain alert and aware on every occasion – knowing that precious lives so often depend on the decisions I make.. Give me wisdom I pray and understanding to discern what needs to be done on each occasion.

Bless each member of my crews that are under my jurisdiction and may I be wise and fair in my dealings with others – knowing that the stress of the job can have a severe toll on the lives and emotions of those that have made fire fighting their chosen career.

Thank You for my own family and I pray that You would be close to them day by day, knowing that my position causes much strain on us all – especially when I am obliged to keep unsociable hours for the good of the community. Keep us all strong in the faith and I pray that we all may grow closer to Jesus through the twists and turns of life…

Thank You for my life Lord, and help me to be a good witness to others as I go about my duties and may all I do be pleasing in Your sight so that Your name may be glorified in all I do, in Jesus name I pray,
