USSSP: A Scout's Duty to God and Country - Scout's Thanksgiving Prayers

A SCOUTER'S THANKSGIVING PRAYER

With reverance in our hearts,

We, Your many children of many beliefs,

United in common purpose,

Gather to offer this our humble prayer,

In Thanksgiving:

As Scouters we are thankful for:

The many gifts and talents given to our fellow Scouters,

and to ourselves;

The freedom we have to join together and as a team

accomplish more than any of us could alone;

The opportunity to be of service to young people,

parents, other Scouters and our community;

Our joy at seeing so many young people become excited

as they grow and are able to meet challenges;

Being reminded by their ceremonies and legends

that he who serves his fellows, is of his fellows greatest;

And most importantly we are thankful for the gift

of knowing that our prayers are heard.

We each in own way take this moment to silently

add our own thanksgivings . . . (pause)

With thanks in our hearts we offer our prayers

and ask that You, the Great Scoutmaster of All Scouts,

be with each of us until we meet again.

AMEN
