A Spark of Genius

Circle Ten Council

Everyone has a spark of genius in them just waiting to be lit.

If they'll jump into things and not just sit.

Although we may not go down in history as the genius of our day.

We can help others in this world to travel life's way.

By sharing our sparks of genius with others that we know.

Thus helping ideas, along the way to grow and glow.

Remember the spark of an idea we may share with a friend.

Can be added to by others and become a genius idea in the end.

We can be happy because we helped in our small way.

And have each had a part in this thought for the day



A Cub Scoutís Thanksgiving Prayer

Goldenrod District, Mid-America Council

O Heavenly Father, we ask for your blessing

For loved ones and friends that are near.

We thank you for food and for love and for life

And the spirit of Scouting thatís here.

We thank you for leaders who care about boys,

Who give us their time Ė thatís better than toys!

We thank you for dads who help us learn right,

For moms who sew on our badges at night.

For all this, thank you, dear Lord up above,

For being in Scouting is something we love!

Cub Scout Native American Prayer

SCC Council

Morning Star, wake us, filled with joy,
To new days of growing to man from boy.
Sun, with your power, give us light
That we can tell wrong and do what is right.
South Wind, we ask, in your gentle way,
Blow us the willingness to obey.
North Wind, we ask, live up to thy name.
Send us the strength to always be game.
East Wind, we ask, with your breath so snappy.
Fill us with knowledge of how to be happy.
West Wind, we ask, blow all that is fair
To us, that we may always be square.
Moon, that fills the night with her light,
Guard us well while we sleep in the night.
Akela, please guide us in every way.
We'll follow your trail in work and play.

Roundtable Prayer

Cub Scout Roundtable Leadersí Guide

O Lord of us all, we gather together to praise thee and to give thanks for all of our blessings. Give us the gift of joy and help us to give goodwill to all men, now and forever.
