Daughters of the King Prayer Box
Daughters of the King Trinity Chapter is a national Order of Episcopal Women dedicated to prayer, service, and evangelism. Our ladies pray for many people inside and outside the church on an individual basis and collectively. You can fill out a card in the back of the church and place it in the prayer box near the entry doors asking for private prayer for a person(s) or situations without giving your name (unless you choose to provide it) and without having your request placed on the published church prayer list. Each card is completely confidential and discreetly given to one member of the Order. The prayer cards are never discussed in the group or with anyone else. That one Daughter prays for 30 days for that which is written on the card. We invite you to utilize this prayer box knowing your request is privately received and prayed for in Christ's name. Also, as a reminder, you can call Ann O'Bryant in the Church Office in times of illness for support or be placed on the posted prayer list.
The Daughters of the King meet on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 4 PM in the Parish Hall of Trinity Church. For more information contact Teresa Noland.

A Prayer For This Week
We pray for confidence
to share your Word with others
and for the opportunity to proclaim it.
Forgive our reluctance,
our timidity.
We pray for wisdom
to know what should be said
and the moment in which to say it.
Forgive our reticence,
our anxiety.
We pray for knowledge
of the fullness of your Grace
and the willingness to live it.
Forgive our ignorance,
our self-reliance.
Be the centre of all we are
The Light by which we walk
The blessing we bring to others
Through Jesus Christ alone we ask.
