Daughters of the King

Founded in 1885, the Daughters of the King is an international religious order whose mission is the extension of Christ’s Kingdom through Prayer, Service and Evangelism. DOK members go through a period of study and reflection focused on strengthening our relationship with Jesus and with each other. The activities of Neema Chapter at Grace reflect this focus. We pray daily for the needs of Grace Church, our parish leaders, those listed on our prayer list, and for the whole church. Church members may request prayers through a prayer box maintained in the Chapel, or they may approach any Daughter with a prayer request. All prayer requests are kept confidential.

Throughout the year, the Daughters offer Healing Prayers on the third Sunday of every month during the Eucharist, and during the Lenten season, the Daughters offer healing prayers every Sunday. On occasion we hold spiritual events, such as a Lenten quiet day, that are open to the entire congregation.  The Daughters maintain a prayer shawl ministry, making and accepting prayer shawls from the church community. Grace’s pastoral care team delivers the prayer shawls to those in need. The Neema chapter of the Daughters of the King also serves the broader community through preparing layettes for teen mothers.
