The daily cycles of prayer for the Rochester Diocese
God of compassion,
be close to those who are ill, afraid or in isolation.
In their loneliness, be their consolation;
in their anxiety, be their hope;
in their darkness, be their light;
through him who suffered alone on the cross,
but reigns with you in glory,
Jesus Christ our Lord.

Tunbridge Wells, King Charles the Martyr
Vicar: The Rev Laurence Powell
Estonia, Haapsalu St John's
for those hesitating to step out into a daunting vocation.
