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?

DAUGHTERS OF THE KING SELF-DENIAL FUND
The Daughters of the King is a lay order for women in the Episcopal Church. Membership in the order, founded in 1885 by Margaret J. Franklin, today includes women who worship in many Christian denominations. Daughters of the King undertake a rule of life, which incorporates prayer and service. In addition, they pledge themselves to strengthen the spiritual life of their parish and to spread the Good News of God in Christ. Through this
commitment to evangelism they also support the Daughters of the King “Self-Denial Fund,” created in 1897 by Lily Funsten Ward, who was a missionary to China. Today, the “Self-Denial Fund” supports missionary efforts world-wide. The Feast of the Presentation of Christ in the Temple, February 2, is designated annually as the date for ingathering
of “Self-Denial Fund” contributions, although donations are accepted at any time by the Daughters of the King.

The Prayer of the Order
O Eternal Father, you have sent u s your Son to teach us things pertaining to your heavenly Kingdom. Give your blessing to our Order wherever it may be throughout the world. Grant that we, your Daughters, ever may discern your truth and bear the cross through the battles of our earthly life. Give us strength to overcome temptation and the grace to work to spread your Kingdom and to gather your scattered sheep within your fold. Pour out upon us the sevenfold gift of the Holy Spirit that we may always remember it is your work we are called to do, that all we think, do or say may be pleasing in your sight. We ask it all For His Sake, our King and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
