Daughters of the King
At St. Stephen’s church, we care for one another in many ways, and especially through prayer. We pray for one another in Emmaus Groups, through the parish prayer list we publish each Sunday, and through our spoken prayers during worship.
Sometimes, people want their prayer request to remain private. The Daughters of the King is an order for women with members who are Episcopalian, Anglican, Lutheran and Roman Catholic. Members of this order participate in a ministry of intercessory prayer held in strict confidence.
St. Stephen's established a parish chapter of the Daughters of the King, named the St. Therese Chapter, in January 2018, for which parishioner Sherlyn Dibble serves as the convener and the Rev. Claudia Merritt is chaplain, under the guidance of the rector.
If you would like to request intercessory prayer by the Daughters of the King, please use one of the cards and envelopes placed in the narthex (the entryway to the church), at Information Central or any Welcome Table. Seal the completed form in the accompanying envelope and place it in any of the black boxes on those tables. Envelopes will be opened only by members of the Daughters of the King. Or you may use this online prayer request form.
If you have questions about this ministry, or you would like to explore a vocation as a member of this order, please be in touch with Sherlyn or Claudia.
