Here’s a grace which is sung to the tune of Auld Lang Syne. This makes a really wonderful Thanksgiving grace. Or it would be a good addition to a Scout’s Own prayer service.
Today I’d like to share a prayer with you which reflects a message of peace.
Our council has several properties, but the one most Boy Scouts attend for summer camp is S bar F Scout Ranch. This is the S bar F Ranch grace.
Native American lore is an important part of the Boy Scout and Cub Scout programs. This prayer is attributed to Chief Sealth (for whom Seattle is named).
This prayer is attributed to Lord Baden-Powell himself. B-P clearly believed that faith was an important component of his Scouting program. So while Scouting is not specific to any particular faith, there is a spiritual aspect to it. This prayer, based on the Scout Law, would be appropriate for most groups of Scouts.
This favorite Cub Scout grace is a song. The tune is the theme of the Addams Family show. (Hence the name.)
A Scout is Reverent. This prayer incorporates the twelve points of the Scout Law.
This grace is also known as the Wilderness Grace or the Worth Ranch Grace. It is attributed to Jerry Fulkerson from the Worth Ranch Scout Camp in Texas.
Duty to God is an important part of Scouting, so don’t forget to say grace at Scouting events. This is a non-denominational grace which would be appropriate at any meal.
