Daughters of the King
Vision Statement: Empowered by the Holy Spirit, our vision as Daughters of the King is to know Jesus Christ, to make Him known to others, and to become reflections of God’s love throughout the world.
Who We are: The Order of the Daughters of the King (DOK) is a spiritual sisterhood of women dedicated to a life of Prayer, Service and Evangelism. We have made a commitment to Jesus as our Savior, and we follow Him as Lord of our lives. We are an Order of women who are communicants of The Episcopal Church, churches in communion with it, or churches in the Historic Episcopate. Today our membership includes women in the Anglican, Episcopal, Lutheran (ELCA) and Roman Catholic churches.
The Daughter’s Rule of Life
The Rule of PrayerIn the Christian life nothing can be substituted for prayer. It is a Daughter’s daily recourse to the source of life and strength. Every member must have a rule of daily prayer. Communication with God must be a growing, deepening relationship with Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Each Daughter’s Rule of Prayer should be carefully considered and guarded. It should be prayerfully chosen, reviewed regularly and revised periodically.
Part of the Rule of Prayer is to pray daily:
• For the unity of Christ’s Church
• For the spread of Christ’s Kingdom, especially among women and girls.
• For God’s blessing upon the member of the Order.
• For the spiritual growth of the parish and for the clergy of the parish to which the chapter owes allegiance.
• For the grace to follow our Rule and for our own needs.
The Rule of Service Through her Rule of Service, a Daughter daily seeks to do the will of God where she is, remembering Jesus’ words, “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these ... you did it for me.” Matthew 25:40 (NIV). The Rule of Service is the application of one’s baptismal vow, reaffirmed by Confirmation:
• To be Christ’s faithful servant in the extension of His Kingdom
• To regularly take part in the worship, study and work of the Church.
• To render at all times aid to the clergy as deemed necessary for the spiritual up-building of the parish.
The Motto of the Order For His Sake .... I am but one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. What I can do, I ought to do. What I ought to do, by the grace of God I will do. Lord, what will you have me do?
