The Collect

O LORD, who for our sake didst fast forty days and forty nights; Give us grace to use such abstinence, that, our flesh being subdued to the Spirit, we may ever obey thy godly motions in righteousness, and true holiness, to thy honour and glory, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.

Lambeth Articles [of 1595] (2)

In 1595, in England at least, there was no Calvinist consensus regarding the doctrine of predestination and the laying aside of the Lambeth Articles was a missed opportunity. The church in England had a chance to clarify what Calvinists believed about predestination by accepting these Articles. Their failure made the debates of 1618-1619 at Dordt and the 1640s debates at Westminster absolutely necessary.

Thanks to D. Philip Veitch at the Reformation Anglicanism blog for referring me to this link. I have chose to link to the PDF version of the article for easier readability.
