The Boy Scouts of America's National Day of Prayer Patch — The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has long been an organization that encourages its members to grow in their faith and contribute positively to their communities. In line with this tradition, the BSA is offering a unique opportunity for Scouts to engage in a meaningful observance of the National Day of Prayer on May 2, 2024.

A Day of Reflection and Unity

The National Day of Prayer is a significant event that invites individuals from all walks of life to come together in prayer and meditation. Recognized on the first Thursday of May, this day has been set aside by Congress for Americans to turn to God in prayer at churches, in groups, and as individuals.

Scouts’ Participation: A Worldwide Effort

The BSA’s National Religious Relationships Committee is calling upon Scouts and their families to participate in a historic effort by reading a portion of their own sacred texts at 5:30 p.m. local time on the National Day of Prayer. This initiative not only allows Scouts to fulfill their Duty to God but also connects them with a global community of faith.

The Commemorative Patch

To commemorate participation in this event, the BSA is offering a special patch. This patch is not just a symbol of participation; it represents the Scout’s commitment to their faith and the shared values of the Scouting community. The patch is a tangible reminder of the Scout’s duty to God and their country, as outlined in the Scout Oath and Law.

How to Get Involved

Scouts can participate in this event in several ways:

  • Reading their sacred text at home with family.
  • Coordinating with their faith leader to read at their place of worship.
  • Joining with a fellow Scout to read at home or a faith location.

As Christians, our sacred text is the Bible.

A Call to Action

The BSA encourages all Scouts to take part in this event, which not only strengthens personal faith but also fosters a sense of unity among Scouts nationwide. By participating, Scouts demonstrate their commitment to the principles of the Scout Oath and Law, and the importance of spiritual growth.

The Impact of the Patch

The National Day of Prayer patch serves as a symbol of the Scout’s journey in faith and their connection to a larger community. It is a badge of honor that signifies their active role in a tradition that transcends cultural and religious boundaries, promoting peace and goodwill.

Conclusion

The Boy Scouts of America’s initiative to offer a National Day of Prayer patch is a beautiful blend of faith, community, and Scouting values. It is an invitation for Scouts to express their spirituality and join a collective prayer for the nation and the world. As Scouts don their patches, they carry with them the spirit of unity and the power of prayer, making the National Day of Prayer an even more special occasion for the Scouting community.
