City Wide Prayer Service

Just to let you know that there will be a Prayer Service at UTA tomorrow at 5 pm until 7 pm at the College Park Center.  This is a nondenominational, nonpartisan gathering.   The hope is to appeal to the faithful in the community prior to Election Day, that the Lord's will be accomplished.  Churches participating are Fielder Baptist, Grace Community, Pantego Bible, and Crossroads of Arlington.  People are asked to bring a non perishable food item.  I will be there and my assigned prayer will be for the Fire Fighters.  No participants will be recognized or introduced.  The doors will open at 4:00 pm Sunday and all are welcome.  All prayers will be limited to 1 minute.  For those that can't make it tomorrow I will be reciting the following.

Prayer for Fire Fighters

Father – As you save our spiritual soles from the flames of eternal
damnation so to do the fire fighters here on earth save our mortal
lives from fire through their unselfish acts of heroism.  So Father I
take this opportunity to lift them up to you as a community and
recognize their tremendous bravery.  I ask that you keep
these courageous men and women close to you.  Just as you have
kept the 343 fire fighters that ascended to you on 9-11.

            Father I pray for the Fire Chiefs and Station Captains of this
great nation, for their leadership and wisdom, so that they might be
able to operate and maintain their departments effectively. Give them the
knowledge, understanding and training required to maintain their professional resolve
when the fire alarm sounds.

            Lastly Father I pray for the safety of the individual fire
fighter who is in harms way each and every day.  I pray that you
accompany them into the burning buildings that they bravely enter,
and that you give them the compassion required to rescue each
survivor in peril.  Whether it be from a fire or a medical

            I ask all of these things through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.  Amen.
