Loving heavenly Father, we come to You today in loving remembrance and grateful thanks for the brave fire-fighter who recently died in the recent raging fire, while carrying out his duty.
Thank You for his life, his efforts and the many people that he has brought to safety in the course of his career - and now Lord he has died in an attempt to rescue those that were perishing in the smoke and flames of this recent fire tragedy.
Lord we ask for Your comfort for his wife, his family – his friends and colleagues and pray that You will be very close to them all in this time of such great sadness and sorrow.
Father we pray that You would provide for all their needs, both financial and emotional and we also pray that You would draw very close to them spiritually. May they know Your presence with them - upholding them and keeping them throughout this difficult time.
We ask this in the precious name of the Lord Jesus,
