Lifeguarding prayers

Last summer I knew I wanted to work as a lifeguard at a local pool—so I took an intensive lifeguarding course as soon as summer break began. I spent 30 hours over the span of a week learning everything I needed to know in order to receive my lifeguard certification. Just a few days after completing all the requirements, I was hired to work at a pool nearby. I was really excited to start because I would be putting all the skills I had learned into real life practice!

But then, the night before my first day of work, I started feeling extremely nervous. In spite of my training, I doubted that I really had what it takes to rescue and save someone if the necessity arose. I was worried that if someone actually started drowning I would be so scared that I would forget how to rescue them.
