Daughters of the King
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 for women who are communicants of the Episcopal Church, churches in communion with it, or churches in the Historic Episcopate.
The Rule of Prayer
|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 members 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?
