December 2013 : Open Thread

How are you, Angels?  It’s been a while. December is coming, with its rain and snow, that makes you think about Raim’s dad, the fireman who was praying for the rain to come .

Let’s check again the Fireman’s Prayer, shall we?

When I am called to duty, God
whenever flames may rage,
Give me the strength to save some life
Whatever be its age.

Help me to embrace a little child
Before it’s too late,
Or some 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 give the best in me,
To guard my neighbor
And protect his property.

And if according to Your will
I have to lose my life,
Please bless with Your protecting hand
My children and my wife
