Prayers for the Firefighters

Gracious God, when the call comes, when the bell rings, firefighters go out to save people and property, risking their lives in service to their fellow citizens. We remember before you today the 19 firefighters who lost their lives in the line of duty in the Yarnell wildfire in Arizona (and the 4 who died in the hotel fire in Houston). Give to these your servants rest and peace. Comfort the families and friends who are mourning their loss. Be with those whose communities are still struggling with fire and guide all those who continue to answer the call to fight the fires. Help us to reach out our hands in love to all the communities devastated by fire. We ask this in the name of the one who brings life to all, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
