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 20

Question 20

What was the providence of God toward man in the estate in which he was created?

The providence of God toward man in the estate in which he was created, was the placing him in paradise, appointing him to dress it, giving him liberty to eat of the fruit of the earth; (Gen. 2:8,15–16) putting the creatures under his dominion, (Gen. 1:28) and ordaining marriage for his help; (Gen. 2:18) affording him communion with himself; (Gen. 1:26–29, Gen. 3:8) instituting the Sabbath; (Gen. 2:3) entering into a covenant of life with him, upon condition of personal, perfect, and perpetual obedience, (Gal. 3:12, Rom. 10:5) of which the tree of life was a pledge; (Gen. 2:9) and forbidding to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, upon the pain of death. (Gen. 2:17)
