Province 7 is one of the eight Daughters of the King provinces in the United States. Province 7 covers seven states, and currently includes 13 Dioceses and one Archdiocese.
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.
To learn more about The Order, we encourage you to visit our National Website. Simply click on the DOK cross above or go to http://www.doknational.org/

The Rule of Prayer
In the Christian life nothing can be substituted for prayer. It is a Daughter’s daily recourse to the source of life and strength. Every member must have a rule of daily prayer. Communication with God must be a growing, deepening relationship with Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Each Daughter’s Rule of Prayer should be carefully considered and guarded. It should be prayerfully chosen, reviewed regularly and revised periodically.
Part of the Rule of Prayer is to pray daily:
v For the unity of Christ's Church.
v For the spread of Christ's Kingdom, especially among women and girls.
v For God's blessing upon the members of the Order.
v For the spiritual growth of the parish and for the clergy of the parish
to which the chapter owes allegiance.
v 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:
v To be Christ's faithful servant in the extension of His Kingdom
v To regularly take part in the worship, study and work of the Church.
v To render at all times aid to the clergy as deemed necessary for the
spiritual up-building of the parish.
