The Hot Shot Prayer & How You Can Help

Granite Mountain Hot Shots Logo

Representing his 19 fellow fallen crew members who perished June 30 while battling the Yarnell Fire, Granite Mountain Hotshots member Brendan McDonough read “The Hot Shot’s Prayer” during Tuesday’s memorial service.  Following is the text of the prayer:

When I am called to duty, Lord …

To fight the roaring blaze …

Please keep me safe and strong …

I may be here for days.

Be with my fellow crew members …

As we hike up to the top.

Help us cut enough line …

For this blaze to stop.

Let my skills and hands …

Be firm and quick.

Let me find those safety zones …

As we hit and lick.

For if this day on the line …

I should answer death’s call …

Lord, bless my hot shot Crew …

My family, one and all
