Collect for Tuesday in the Third Week of Lent

  1. O Lord, we beseech you mercifully to hear us; 
    and grant that we, to whom you have given a fervent desire to pray, 
    may, by your mighty aid, 
    be defended and comforted in all dangers and adversities; 
    through Jesus Christ our Lord, 
    who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, 
    one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
