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 48

Question 48

How did Christ humble himself in his life?

Christ humbled himself in his life, by subjecting himself to the law, (Gal. 4:4) which he perfectly fulfilled; (Matt. 5:17, Rom. 5:19) and by conflicting with the indignities of the world, (Ps. 22:6, Heb. 12:2–3) temptations of Satan, (Matt. 4:1–12, Luke 4:13) and infirmities in his flesh, whether common to the nature of man, or particularly accompanying that his low condition. (Heb. 2:17–18, Heb. 4:15, Isa. 52:13–14)
