My Sisters in Christ,
I pray that you are well. My thoughts and prayers are with all Daughters as we endure these uncertain times together. In my lifetime, I have not experienced a worldwide pandemic health crisis such as COVID-19 that has universally affected everyone’s life and way of living. Can I say “Quarantine”? What can we do as Daughters during this time to help? We continue our vow of prayer! I pray daily for your health, well-being and protection. I am praying and asking all Daughters to stop what they are doing every day at noon and pray the Lord’s Prayer daily until this crisis ends. Together, we must remain united in prayer, grounded in faith so that we stand firm against this enemy and persevere through this unprecedented time. God will prevail and see us through this pandemic, hopefully, sooner than later. I pray for peace and healing to flow like a river through our communities by the power of the Holy Spirit. Won’t you pray with me? Click here to view our webpage with prayers and information about COVID-19.
In addition to prayer, reach out to other Daughters and stay connected via telephone, email or social media. If technology has not been your forte in the past, now might be the time to learn something new so you can stay in community with your sisters. For chapters in training or others who would like to have their chapter meeting via video conferencing, the national office has a Zoom account. Daughters can email DOK1885@doknational.org and request to schedule a Zoom meeting with their chapters. It is fairly easy to do and a wonderful experience to see everyone’s faces. Many churches are live streaming their services so be sure to check into attending a virtual service. Speaking of virtual services, we have a very special one coming soon!
Please join me and other Daughters online as The Order of the Daughters of the King® virtually celebrates 135 years of Prayer, Service and Evangelism! We invite you to join us for a special virtual celebration! This Saturday, April 4th at 8 pm EST, we will begin with a special history of The Order with content from our Facebook page, then we will move to a Zoom meeting for virtual community! The Zoom information will be included on the Facebook post. Due to limited capacity, the Zoom meeting will be available on a first come, first serve basis. I’d love to see Daughters donned in blue and white and ready to toast to 135 years of The Order! I look forward to seeing you online soon!
As always, you remain in my prayers. Should you need me, do not hesitate to call or email me anytime.
For His Sake,
