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 49

Question 49

How did Christ humble himself in his death?

Christ humbled himself in his death, in that having been betrayed by Judas, (Matt. 27:4) forsaken by his disciples, (Matt. 26:56) scorned and rejected by the world, (Isa. 53:2–3) condemned by Pilate, and tormented by his persecutors; (Matt. 27:26–50, John 19:34) having also conflicted with the terrors of death, and the powers of darkness, felt and borne the weight of God’ s wrath, (Luke 22:44, Matt. 27:46) he laid down his life an offering for sin, (Isa. 53:10) enduring the painful, shameful, and cursed death of the cross. (Phil. 2:8, Heb. 12:2, Gal. 3:13)
