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 32

Question 32

How is the grace of God manifested in the second covenant?

The grace of God is manifested in the second covenant, in that he freely provideth and offereth to sinners a Mediator, (Gen. 3:15, Isa. 42:6, John 6:27) and life and salvation by him; (1 John 5:11–12) and requiring faith as the condition to interest them in him, (John 3:16, John 1:12) promiseth and giveth his Holy Spirit (Prov. 1:23) to all his elect, to work in them that faith, (2 Cor. 4:13) with all other saving graces; (Gal. 5:22–23) and to enable them unto all holy obedience, (Ezek. 36:27) as the evidence of the truth of their faith (James 2:18,22) and thankfulness to God, (2 Cor. 5:14–15) and as the way which he hath appointed them to salvation. (Eph. 2:10)
