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.

Westminster Larger Catechism: Question 19

Question 19

What is God’ s providence towards the angels?

God by his providence permitted some of the angels, willfully and irrecoverably, to fall into sin and damnation, (Jude 6, 2 Pet. 2:4, Heb. 2:16, John 8:44) limiting and ordering that, and all their sins, to his own glory; (Job 1:12, Matt. 8:31) and established the rest in holiness and happiness; (1 Tim. 5:21, Mark 8:38, Heb. 12:22) employing them all, (Ps. 104:4) at his pleasure, in the administrations of his power, mercy, and justice. (2 Kings 19:35, Heb. 1:14)
