Thoughts and prayers to the Philadelphia Fire Department!!!

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the men & women of the Philadelphia Fire Department and the family of Lt. Matt LeTourneau who died in the line of duty yesterday while battling a blaze on N. Colorado St in Philadelphia.
A civilian also died in the fire and two other firefighters were injured.

Rest in peace sir!

Firefighter’s Prayer:
When I am called to duty, God,
wherever flames may rage,
give me strength to save a life,
whatever be its age.
Help me embrace a little child
before it is too late,
or save an older person from
the horror of that fate.
Enable me to be alert,
and hear the weakest shout,
quickly and efficiently
to put the fire out.
I want to fill my calling,
to give the best in me,
to guard my friend and neighbor,
and protect his property.
And if according to Your will
I must answer death’s call,
bless with your protecting hand,
my family one and all.
