Daughters of the King

Mary and Martha Chapter

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. Today our membership includes women in the Anglican, Episcopal, Lutheran (ELCA) and Roman Catholic churches

Daughters of the King News

I am happy to report great joyous news. After over thirty-three years, Lorraine Brumskine returned to Liberia to visit her family and homeland. She departed on February 23rd and returned in April. During her stay in Liberia, she also visited the Sons and Daughters of the King of the Episcopal Church in Buchanan. In the coming weeks, Lorraine will give us an update on how our shipments of supplies are being utilized there.

Lorraine has recently informed us that the schools, run by the churches, are in
critical need of supplies. The schools need children’s textbooks in math, science, social studies, and language arts. There are not enough books to provide for their learning. If anyone has access to textbooks (yes, even older ones) they would be more than happy to receive them. Also, we are actively seeking donations of all kinds of children’s reading books (trade books), and workbooks, and school supplies such as writing paper, note-books, pencils, pens, crayons, scissors, glue, etc. Every donation helps keep the schools running and the children getting the precious gift of an education. We hope to send out our next shipment of supplies in late spring.

Please, give what you can.
For His Sake, Susan Grant

President of the Martha and Mary Chapter of the DOK


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?

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.
