Granite Mountain Hotshots member Brendan McDonough read “The Hot Shot's Prayer” during Tuesday's memorial service for his 19 fellow crew members. They died June 30 while battling a wildfire in Arizona. 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 crewmembers …

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.
