O Lord, mighty in power, a person close to me known by You is a firefighter and is engaged in fighting a raging blaze. These jobs are so incredibly dangerous and require much strength and courage.

Lord Jesus, You say You will keep me from all harm, that You will watch over my life, both now and forevermore. Lord, as I go again on a call to put out flames, I ask that You bless me. Keep me close to You so that I may do my job as a firefighter with love and humility. Bless me with the integrity that I need, so that I do not seek praise and admiration, but the approval of You alone. Bless me, Lord, so that the flames do not touch me and the smoke does not reach my lungs. Bless me with a long life of service to others. I pray this through Jesus Christ, my Lord. Amen.

Lord Jesus, as my loved one again answers the call of a fire, I ask that You send Your Spirit to be with him/her. For they are tired and run down. Day in and day out, they work until there is nothing left of them. They enter perilously into harm’s way and are thanked very little for it. O Lord, give them a tough hide, but a soft heart. Give them the strength and fortitude to do their duty honorably, that they may become a better servant of all. Amen.

Prayer to Guide My Loved One
Lord Jesus, amid a burning building, it can be very difficult to make it through. The halls fill with smoke. Breathing becomes difficult.

Send Your angel to encamp around my loved one and deliver him/her safely from the flames. Amen.

Prayer for Firefighter Families
Gracious Lord, each day, the families of firefighters must endure anxiety and uncertainty about the safety of their beloved. Let Your caring Spirit wash over them.

For through You and in You is all life, grace, and treasure, now and throughout all the ages. Amen.
