The Rule of Prayer
In our Rule of Life, Prayer always comes first. It is the first priority for Daughters, and our Service and Evangelism depend upon it. Each Daughter’s Rule of Prayer should be carefully considered and guarded. It should be prayerfully chosen, reviewed regularly and revised periodically. Our vows do not specify particular prayers, length of prayers, or times of prayer, just that we pray daily for our sisters, our church, and our clergy.
Part of every Daughter's Rule of Prayer is to pray daily:
Even minimal daily prayer increases our ability to see God at work around us. We grow in faith to pray not only for our own needs but also for those of others. As we practice listening for God’s voice, we learn to recognize and act on half-whispered responses to our frequent question: “Lord, what will you have me do?” Over time, daily prayer creates in our hearts a flowing spring of praise and thanksgiving to our awesome God.
The Prayer of the Order
O Eternal Father, you have sent us 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
