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.

Westminster Larger Catechism: Question 63

Question 63

What are the special privileges of the visible church?

The visible church hath the privilege of being under God’ s special care and government; (Isa. 4:5–6, 1 Tim. 4:10) of being protected and preserved in all ages, notwithstanding the opposition of all enemies; (Ps. 115:1–2,9, Isa. 31:4–5, Zech. 12:2–4,8,9) and of enjoying the communion of saints, the ordinary means of salvation, (Acts 2:39,42) and offers of grace by Christ to all members of it in the ministry of the gospel, testifying, that whosoever believes in him shall be saved, (Ps. 147:19–20, Rom. 9:4, Eph. 4:11–12, Mark 16:15–16) and excluding none that will come unto him. (John 6:37)
