Prayers for Evangelical Believers:
Opening an Eagle Scout Ceremony
by Ed Vasicek
Our gracious God and Father,
We thank you for this special day in the life of Carl Christenson. Today we celebrate the accumulated efforts Carl has made over the years to advance in scouting. We think of all the Merit Badges he earned along the way, the oaths he learned, the character he developed, and his service to our community and fellow scouts. Little by little, month by month and year by year he was faithful, and today we celebrate this marker of faithful and hard work.
So we ask You, our Lord, to bless Carl, his family who supported and encouraged him; we ask your blessing to fall upon his fellow scouts whose fellowship he enjoyed along the pathway. We thank You for the scout leaders who gave so much time and energy to develop young men like Carl. Bless them with the certainty that their work has influenced the course of many lives. We all benefit because of their sacrifices and leadership.
And so our God, we pray that you would bless this celebration as we rejoice with Carl.
We pray in Jesusí Name, Amen.
