Dear Firefighter,

First of all, I must let you know how proud I am of you, and how grateful I am for your bravery and selflessness. It’s people like you, police officers, paramedics, and all first responders that make us all rest easy. Thank you for all that you do

I know that I can only imagine some of the sights you see and the impossible choices you have to make while you serve, but I want you to remember that God is always there with you.

He sees and He knows.

In Joshua 1:9, He charges you to stay strong and brave because there’s not a place you can go where He’s not there.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9

What a blessed assurance!

In the face of fear and danger, I urge you to never lose sight of our eternal hope. You know, more than anyone, the vanity of earthly possessions.

It’s wonderful to know that we have treasures laid up for us where fire cannot destroy them

Prayer For Firefighters

Dear God,

Thank you for all the amazing people who have answered the call to be firefighters.

I’m grateful for the courage and passion that You have so graciously bestowed upon them. It takes a special kind of love to be willing to lay down one’s life if it means saving others – Your kind of love.

You said in John 15:13 that there is no greater love than that of a person that would willingly give his/her life for others.


Thank You for giving them the strength it takes to love and serve selflessly.

Lord, Your Word, through Your servant David, declares in Psalm 23:4 that You are with us even when we are face-to-face with danger.

I ask that You continue to protect, strengthen, guide and comfort all our brave firefighters.

I pray that You encourage and empower them for the work You have called them to do.

Father, I ask according to Your Word in Isaiah 43:2, that our firefighters will be shielded from the fires they put out – that they will walk through flames unharmed.

As You were with the three Hebrew children in the burning fiery furnace, dear Lord, be with our firefighters as they encounter flames on a daily basis.

I declare with Paul that our firefighters can do all things, including the humanly impossible, as You grant them the abilities to do so.

 I trust You to be unto them a blanket of protection and safety even in the face of dangerous scenarios that most other people only see in the news.

As our firefighters discharge their duties, Lord, flood their hearts with Your peace that passes all understanding. Give them sound wisdom and insight to make the right decisions in life-or-death situations.

Even as they put their lives on the line, God, make Your Word in Habakkuk 3:19 a reality in their lives.

Habakkuk 3:19 Bible Verse

Be their strength and help them tread on solid places. As in Psalm 56:3, help them to trust in You whenever fear creeps into their hearts. Comfort them when they see sights that break their heart.

Finally, Lord, I pray that You strengthen and comfort their families while they serve. May they stay conscious and proud of the noble service of their loved ones, whose ceaseless efforts will never be in vain.

I pray these things in Jesus’ Name.Amen.
