PRAYERS AND POEMS FOR SCOUTERS
Prayer for Boys
Cub Scout Roundtable
We give thanks for the time we are able to spend with the Cub Scouts in our
Dens and Packs. May we use it wisely today as we seek to instill in them
the values of Scouting, helping them to grow to be men of character for
Circle Ten Council
Go placidly amid the noise and excitement of your
And remember that this is one sign of good Scouting.
As far as possible without surrender
Be on good terms with all your fellow leaders.
Plan your programs carefully and cheerfully;
And listen to others,
Even the youngest Wolf Cub;
He will give you many moments of Joy.
Avoid loud and aggressive gatherings of Scouters,
Except when you're part of one.
If you compare your pack with others,
Do not achievements as well as your plans.
Keep in mind become vain or bitter;
For success can only be judged by the smiles on their faces.
Enjoy your the Aim of the movement,
However hard to understand at times,
It is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution with your pack funds;
For a Cub works hard for his dues.
But let this not blind you to what Scouting is all about..
Baden-Powell wrote it himself; Camping and the Outdoors.
Especially, have fun.
Neither burn out too soon;
For in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
Those boys are depending on you.
Take kindly the counsel of your Service Team,
They will help you all that they can.
Nurture strength of spirit in case of a failure
But do not blame yourself... you have done your best,
And what you think of as failure may be super fun to your Cubs.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
Be gentle with yourself.
You are the most important person in Scouting;
We need more adults like yourself
To help the youth of this world.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
You are molding the future of this country.
Therefore, be at peace with God,
Whatever you conceive Him to be,
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
In the noisy confusion of your meeting
Keep peace with yourself.
With all its hard work and sometimes frustration,
It is still a wonderful movement.
Strive for good Scouting ...

In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
Example is not the main thing in influencing others. It is the only thing.
I saw this one somewhere but have not been able
to find the source. CD –
The minute someone thinks they are
interesting, they aren’t.
