Scout's Honor Prayer

On My Honor

by Walter Dudley Cavert

Dear Heavenly Father, help me to make honor the watchword of my life. Above everything else may I place the integrity of my own soul. Teach me that character is my most priceless possession.

As I wear my Scout badge, may it remind me that I have taken a vow to be a person of honor. Give me strength to be true to my promise.

Lift my life above all sham and make-believe. Give me a steadfast loyalty to the highest and best that I know. May I have the courage to stand for what I believe to be right in your sight, no matter what others may say or do. Keep me from violating my honor or selling my soul.

May the example of Jesus be my guide. Help me to remember that he cared more for your approval than for the praise or blame of men. In Christ's name, Amen.

Yours in Scouting Service

Quotes- Rober Baden Powell

The sport in Scouting is to find the good in every boy and develop it.

In Scouting, a boy is encouraged to educate himself instead of being instructed.

The most important object in Boy Scout training is to educate, not instruct.

In all of this, it is the spirit that matters. Our Scout law and Promise, when we really put them into practice, take away all occasion for wars and strife among nations.

Show me a poorly uniformed troop and I'll show you a poorly uniformed leader.

The more responsibility the Scoutmaster gives his patrol leaders, the more they will respond.

When you want a thing done, 'Don't do it yourself' is a good motto for Scoutmasters.

An individual step in character training is to put responsibility on the individual.

Be Prepared... the meaning of the motto is that a scout must prepare himself by previous thinking out and practicing how to act on any accident or emergency so that he is never taken by surprise.

The uniform makes for brotherhood, since when universally adopted it covers up all differences of class and country.

A boy is naturally full of humor.

A Scout is never taken by surprise; he knows exactly what to do when anything unexpected happens.

Scoutmasters need the capacity to enjoy the out-of-doors.

O God, help me to win, but in thy wisdom if thou willest me not to win, then O God, make me a good loser.

It should be the thing never to mention unfairness of judging when defeated in a contest.

The object of the patrol method is not so much having the Scoutmaster trouble as to give responsibility to the boy.

Success in training the boy depends largely on the Scoutmaster's own personal example.

The Scoutmaster guides the boy in the spirit of another brother.

The good turn will educate the boy out of the groove of selfishness.

Loyalty is a feature in a boy's character that inspires boundless hope.
