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.

Lambeth Articles [of 1595] (2)

In 1595, in England at least, there was no Calvinist consensus regarding the doctrine of predestination and the laying aside of the Lambeth Articles was a missed opportunity. The church in England had a chance to clarify what Calvinists believed about predestination by accepting these Articles. Their failure made the debates of 1618-1619 at Dordt and the 1640s debates at Westminster absolutely necessary.

Thanks to D. Philip Veitch at the Reformation Anglicanism blog for referring me to this link. I have chose to link to the PDF version of the article for easier readability.
