EMERGENCY MEDICAL TECHNICIANS
I pray for all who stand ready to serve,
and to save our lives, day and night,
in all weathers and in the most strenuous
and dangerous situations.
be with them when they stand guard, patrol, and negotiate
traffic at high speeds, and when they operate at the
of busy highways, in burning buildings,
and when they are under attack from violent, drugged
or erratic individuals, prisoners, rioters and criminal
send Saint Michael, Archangel,
with bands of strong guarding angels
to protect our protectors who put their
own lives in jeopardy in order
to protect ours.
also send last-minute guilt and remorse
to thieves, murderers, drunks and other miscreants
that they might, at the last minute, be deterred from
wicked, injudicious, aberrant and unwise decisions.
pray for the souls of all first-responders killed
in the line of duty, and for all
the arsonists, drunken drivers, thieves, murderers
and others who cause the deaths
of our dedicated public servants, who risk their lives
daily that the rest of us
may remain safe.
this I pray
in the name of Christ Redeemer,
2012 Donn B. Murphy
