Daughters of the King is a lay religious order for women founded in 1885 in New York City. Members take lifelong vows to follow a "Rule of Life," which incorporates a "Rule of Prayer" and a "Rule of Service." The motto of the Order is:

For His Sake. . . I am but one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. What I can do, I ought to do. What I ought to do, by the grace of God I will do. Lord, what will you have me do?
