Prayer For A Firefighter

Just as law enforcement officers are called to protect and to serve, so too Father are we firefighters called to protect lives even at the risk of our own lives. When needed, please help me embrace a little child before it is too late, to save an older person from the horror of a fiery fate and enable me to be alert and hear the weakest shout for help and to quickly find those who need saving so that I might save lives because life is precious to You and to us too since that is our special call and in the line of our duty to save lives and protect property, I pray for Your help in this and in Jesus' most precious name I pray, amen.

Great God in heaven, You alone know what today holds and I know that firefighters have a special calling to go into places that are often full of danger and there is always the possibility for the unknown. Please help us all watch out for the safety of others in the performance of their duties in fighting fires and that I keep an eye out for others who may be placed in areas of danger. This calling God is from You and You alone and so help me to fulfill my duty and to do so in a way that brings honor and glory to You and Your Great Name and in the strong name of Jesus Christ I pray, amen.

Almighty God, protector of all, your strength, power, and
wisdom are a beacon of light to all:

Give special guidance to firefighters so that we may be
protected from harm while performing our duty.

Help me with your loving care while I work to save the
lives and property of all people, young and old.

Give me the courage, the alertness to protect my
neighbors and all others whom I am pledged to aid
when involved in fire or accident.


Merciful Father in heaven, look down in Your love upon all those who protect us and ours from the ravages of fire and flame. Grant them the courage and skills to carry out their duties well and safely. When they must go into the face of danger, be by their side in the smoke and flames. Watch over their families, ever reminding them that those who fight fire are also in Your loving care. This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour. Amen.

Lord, you know the dangers and trauma firefighters experience on the job. Comfort all firefighters who are facing trauma and depression because of what they have witnessed in the line of duty.

Show them how to draw near to you to receive the help they need from your throne of grace.

May your unfailing love be their source of comfort as you promised in your word (Psalm 119:76).

Assure them of your constant love and leave their burdens in your hands. Give them the peace and courage they need to face each day on the job. Encourage their hearts each day.

May they focus on your goodness and not fear any unpleasant event they may face each day on the job.

Heal their hearts and give them hope to face a new day. Let them never tire to seek your face because you are their source for everything they need.

In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.

Heavenly Father, you are the giver of peace and comfort. Please give your peace to the family of [Name] who is a firefighter.

Help them not to worry when their loved one is away saving lives threatened by fire and other disasters.

Watch over this family for you never sleep or slumber.

Speak into their anxious thoughts and give them hope that they will see their loved one again.

Remind them they can always cast their anxiety on you because you care about them (1 Peter 5:7).

Let their minds not worry about their loved one fighting for the lives of others.

In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.

Lord, you have promised to never leave or forsake us. Let those you have called as firefighters know that you are always with them.

May they discharge their duties knowing you are always by their side.

Help them work with all their hearts as though working for the Lord and not human masters because they are serving the Lord Jesus Christ.Bless them for their selfless work in serving your people.

May they discharge their duties with integrity and value for human life. Grant them the wisdom to make decisions that will save many lives.

Quicken their minds to think on the spot and act in the nick of time. Give them spiritual insight into how to deal with every assignment.

Remind them to pray for those they rescue so they can make a quick recovery. Give them a word of encouragement which they can share with the victims.

In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.


thank you for blessing us with firefighters who are unafraid to risk their lives for ours.

I pray that you would protect our community from fires and other emergencies as much as possible.

But when they arise, give our firefighters courage and compassion. Keep them safe and healthy, so that they can go home to their loved ones.

I pray for their families as well; help them to know that these brave men and women are in your hands.

All of this I pray in Your Son's name,
