Scouts Make Prayer Easy & Cosmic

Gandhi in PrayerMets vs. Philadelphia, August 24, 2015: 16-7

cosmic

adjective cos·mic \ˈkäz-mik\

characterized by greatness especially in extent, intensity, or comprehensiveness

Monday’s game welcoming back Mets captain David Wright was so anticipated in my household that, by the time the team was losing 7-2 in the third inning, I realized I had forgotten to pray for the Mets that day.

Are you one of the millions of Americans who’ve camped at Boy Scout summer camp? Scouts know how to make learning and accomplishment easy, fun and – yes- cosmic. Three times a day, young men, women, volunteer leaders and staff simply stand and read the mealtime blessings on their dining hall wall or from a booklet under their dining fly to get the job done. I’ve created adaptations, below. Print them and post them wherever is convenient. Sung or said, make it easy on yourself. Just think of the cosmic results achieved by the end of the ninth inning on Monday.

MORNING GRACE

Gracious Giver of all good,

Thee we thank for rest and food,

Grant that all Mets do or say,

In thy service be this day.

Grant that all Mets do or say

In thy service be this day!

AMEN!

 

NOON-TIME GRACE

Father for this noon-day meal,

We would speak the praise we feel,

Health and strength we have from thee,

Help our Mets successful be.

Health and strength we have from thee,

Help our Mets successful be.

AMEN!

 

EVENING GRACE

Tireless Guardian on our way,

Thou has kept us well this day,

While we thank thee we request,

New York Mets to be their best.

While we thank thee we request,

New York Mets to be their best.

AMEN!
