The Prescott 19. Rest in peace.

Arizona’s heart is breaking tonight.

19 members of the Prescott Hot Shots fire crew were lost saving lives from the  the Yarnell Hill Fire yesterday.

Firefighter’s Prayer

When I am called to duty, God,
Whenever flames may rage
Give me strength to save a life
Whatever be its age.

Help me embrace a little child
Before it is too late
Or save an older person from
The horror of that fate.

Enable me to be alert
And hear the weakest shout
And quickly and efficiently
Put the fire out.

I want to fill my calling
To give the best in me
To guard my friend and neighbor
And protect his property.

And if according to Your will
While on duty I must answer death’s call
Bless with Your protecting hand
My family one and all.
