The Forestry Prayer

Lord, Grant us your protection as we protect your creation.
Help us educate the human race to the importance of taking care of our natural resources.
Surround us with angels as we go out to fight the fires that strive to consume our woodlands.
Give those around us the understanding to step aside and let us do what we are trained to do.
May others see that we are doing the best we can to keep our trees and forests here for another generation to enjoy.
Daily show us your glory in each and every tree, plant, shrub and animal.
Use Smokey Bear to encourage future generations to become Rangers.
And may we always promote to the citizens of our nation that "Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires".
