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: Update on the Liberian Project

Blessings to all! We recently received word that our last shipment of supplies arrived in
Liberia. We have been told that these supplies have been joyfully received and are being put to good use. (see side page on the Liberian Project)  The critical donations we send for these children and young mothers help support living in the boarding schools run by the local churches. These churches provide shelter, food, education and protection for these children and young mothers. Young girls are often exploited and sold as “teenage brides” currently in Liberia. Our contact person in Liberia is Julia Duncan-Cassell. She is president of the Sons and Daughters of the King of the Episcopal Church in Buchanan Liberia. Julia has told us that the following supplies are critically needed: feminine hygiene pads, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, bar soap, Vaseline (petroleum jelly), and cocoa butter cream. “Depend” type disposables are in need for the elderly in the community. Also, P.P.E. supplies are critically needed including: face masks, hand sanitizer, “low splash” bleach and disposable gloves. We are hoping to send out a new shipment of supplies (donations) fairly soon. Please, donate what you can. All shipping costs are being paid for by a grant. Donations can be dropped off in the foyer before and after our church services or during office hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. Thank you so much for your continuing support of this important ministry.

For His Sake,

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.
