PRAYERS & POEMS FOR SCOUTERS

Once upon a time there was a child ready to be born.

The child asked God "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"

God replied, "Among the many angels, I chose one for you. Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you."

The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in heaven I don't have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy."

God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you every day. And you will feel your angel's love and be very happy."

Again the child asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language?"

God said, "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak."

"And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"

God said, "Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray."

"I've heard that on Earth there are bad men. Who will protect me?"

God said, "Your angel will defend you even if it means risking it's life."

"But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore."

God said, "Your angel will always talk to you about me and will teach you the way to come back to me, even though I will always be next to you."

At that moment there was much peace in heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, "God, If I am to leave now, please tell me my angel's name."

"Her name is not important. You will simply call her MOM."

Great quotations

The art of conversation consist as much in listening politely, as in talking agreeably. Atwell

There are four ways, and only four ways, in which we have contact with the world. We are evaluated and classified by these four contacts: what we do, how we look, what we say, and how we say it. Dale Carnegie

The art of communication is the language of leadership. James Humes

Communication is a two-way street. And while we revel in the reality that we can always get through to heaven, our concern should be whether our Lord can always get through to us. Joseph Stowell

 

Sam Houston Area Council

 

Prayer For An Outing

 

We thank You O God, for all the loveliness of nature,

Which is Your special handicraft.

Everything is wonderfully made with such care.

Help us to understand our world more and more and to

know how we can help take care of the things which You

have made and keep them beautiful as You meant for

them to be. Amen.

Graces

 

0 God, Who givest all things good,
We pray Thee now to bless our food. Amen

For these Thy gifts we thank Thee, 0 God,
And we pray that all our deeds may praise Thee,
not merely what we say. Amen.

For these and all the things we hold dear,
and mostly for Thy loving care, we thank Thee, Lord. Amen.

God is great and God is good, and we thank Him for this food. By His hand we all are fed.
Grant us, Lord, our daily bread. Amen.

We thank Thee for the morning light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends. Amen.
