Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

The Heritage Anglican Network: An Ashless Ash Wednesday for Anglicans

The Heritage Anglican Network: An Ashless Ash Wednesday for Anglicans

I used the 1662 BCP for MP, the Litany, and the Commination on Ash Wednesday. (no ashes, of course) It was a biblical and reformed beginning to Lent. Did anyone else have a similar use? Michael Northup

I also read the collect for Ash Wednesday. I didn't detect anything in the collect that would contradict the sovereignty of God. In fact, the collect emphasizes both repentance and the fact that nothing we do is possible apart from God's monergistic grace provided beforehand.
