Diocese of Rochester Cycle of Prayer

The daily cycles of prayer for the Rochester Diocese

Prayer points for October 18, 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.
(From Church of England Coronavirus (COVID-19) liturgy and prayer resources.)

Trinity 19


Isaiah 35.3-6 or Acts 16.6-12a

Psalm 147.1-7

2 Timothy 4.5-17

Luke 10.1-9

Today the Church of England remembers Luke the Evangelist.

Health and Wellbeing

Paul describes Luke as 'the belovèd physician' so this day is often set aside for ministry and prayers that focus on health and well-being.

For all healthcare chaplains and our Diocesan Co-ordinating Chaplain for healthcare,

Rev Canon Tim Mercer
