A Rescuer's Prayer

Lord we're not here to be a hero or to be seen or t.v.
we're here to serve a purpose to save a human being.
A mist the death and destruction give us strength to carry on.
Let the light of your love shine as the whole country mourns.
Give our ears the sensitivity to hear the faintest sound
give us courage to keep going until the last person is found.
Even though we know so many precious lives were lost
we will bring the home to their loved ones no matter what the cost.
The walls may crash in around us and the skies may turn deathly gray
But we will go back to ground zero......another day.
