Will provide suprising expose on the subject of Boy Scouts but; before I raise that contoversy - think on this... please... __________________________________________ I always had 13 points but; generally the Scout's Prayer has; "12 points of law"... [I'm always going above and beyond - knowing honesty to be the base of being trustworthy - I started with: "Our father; make us honest for it is better to be honest from the start than to try to cover our mistakes by shading the truth...] The Scouts Prayer: Our Father, make us Trustworthy, for there are those who trust us. Make us Loyal, for through loyalty we reach our highest ideals. Teach us to be Helpful, for through helpfulness do we forget our selfness. Make us Friendly, for there are so many who need a friend. Train us in Courtesy, for courtesy is the carpet on life’s floor. Make us kind for kindness is the oil in the cogs of life’s machinery. Insist upon our Obedience, for victory comes only to him who obeys. Make us Cheerful, for cheerfulness is the green grass among the rocks in the path of life. Train us in Thrift, for thrifty habits brighten our future. Make us Brave; brave in the dark and brave in the light; but save us from becoming fakers in bravery. Help us to be Clean – clean in thoughts, in speech, and in deed. And may we remember that our bodies are Thy holy temples, and that any abuse thereof is to tamper with Thy Great Plans. Above all, O God, help us to be Reverent toward all things which Thou hast made for our enjoyment when we are in Thy great out-of-doors, among the trees, along the streams, and on the Hillsides. May we know it was Thee who made the waters to flow, the trees to reach heavenward, the mountains to endure to all ages. In all these things we ask that Thou wilt help us. And may we never forget the Scout Oath to which we all have pledged ourselves, so that through Thy help we may live these points of our Scout Law. Amen __________________________________________ Just thought you should know... a great start helps pre-empt the all situations with clean hands... Time to wash up with some outdoors people... I now ask; Our Father; teach us to show our thankfulness for our freedom by doing more than just accepting your Oath and Law, but by living them...
