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 55

Question 55

How does Christ make intercession?

Christ maketh intercession, by his appearing in our nature continually before the Father in heaven, (Heb. 9:12, 24) in the merit of his obedience and sacrifice on earth, (Heb. 1:3) declaring his will to have it applied to all believers; (John 3:16, John 17:9, 20, 24) answering all accusations against them, (Rom. 8:33–34) and procuring for them quiet of conscience, notwithstanding daily failings, (Rom. 5:1–2, 1 John 2:1–2) access with boldness to the throne of grace, (Heb. 4:16) and acceptance of their persons (Eph. 1:6) and services. (1 Pet. 2:5)
