    Philmont Grace

    http://www.gatewaybsa.org/files/camp.pdf

    One of the most simple and memorable verses to me is the Philmont Grace. Do you know it? Do you live it?

    FOR FOOD
    For the food of combined thought from all over our great country, to help us grow wiser in Scouting.

    FOR RAIMENT
    For our Scouting uniform, which we have not only the blessing to wear- but the duty to honor.

    FOR LIFE
    For a life of freedom in these great United States, a nation unsurpassed anywhere on this fragile planet, where we are truly free to live the aims of Scouting.

    FOR OPPORTUNITY
    For the opportunity of Philmont and this scouting event itself- to be here with you- some of the finest in the scouting movement.

    FOR FRIENDSHIP
    For those we have met at Philmont- and grown to respect through that common interest- our devotion to the development of the youth.

    AND FELLOWSHIP
    To share a laugh- To help a friend in some small way- To share a sunrise- A sunset- This scouting event. And to return, if only for a moment, to our youth again and together climb a mountain- and reach the stars.

    WE THANK THEE, OH LORD
    Our thanks goes to the one who we individually believe allows us to share the scouting experience with all.

    I learned that prayer 30 years ago and a Cub Scout and still haven't forgotten it.

        Yes, an unforgetable prayer. Nothing like reciting it at Philmont.
