A Prayer for the Boy Scouts
O Lord, we thank you for the work of Sir Robert Baden-Powell,
who in his dedication and wisdom founded the World Scouting Movement.
We thank you for the efforts of those thousands of men and women
who have brought Scouting to millions of boys the world over.
We rededicate ourselves to the principles of our Movement --
To do our best -- to do our duty -- to God -- and to our Country.
We ask you, O Lord, to give us the strength and courage --
each of us -- to live up to the Scout Oath -- the Scout Law --
and the high ideals of the World Brotherhood of Scouting.
Yours in Scouting,
