Diocese of Rochester Cycle of Prayer

The daily cycles of prayer for the Rochester Diocese

Prayer point for July 30, 2020

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. Amen.
