Prayers to Saint Florian

Saint Florian is the patron saint of firefighters as he was responsible for organizing brigades of firefighters. St. Florian was once an officer in the Roman army, and saved an entire burning village with a single bucket of water.

Firefighter's Prayer

Oh, Almighty God,

whose great power and eternal wisdom

embraces the universe,

watch over all Firefighters.
Protect them from harm

in the performance of their duty to

fight fire, save lives, and preserve property.
We pray, help them to keep our homes

and all buildings safe day and night.
We recommend them to Your loving care

because their duty is dangerous.
Grant them Your unending strength

and courage in their daily assignments.

Dear God, protect these brave persons.

Grant them Your Almighty protection

and unite them safely with their families

after duty has ended.
Amen.

Protect your beloved firefighter!

Fireman's Prayer of Intercession

​Almighty God through the intercession

of our patron, Saint Florian,

have mercy on the souls of our comrades

who have made the supreme sacrifice 

in the performance of their duty,

and on all who have gone before us

after years of faithful discharge
of their responsibilities

which now rest on ourselves.
Give special guidance to us

Fireman and 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 pledge to aid

when involved in fire or accident.
Amen.
