Catholic Collects from the Anglican Heritage: Lent I

God who, by this yearly fast of Lent, dost purify thy Church ; grant unto thy family, that whatsoever good they strive to win by abstinence, may be followed consistently by goodness in their deeds; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
The People's Missal
after the Sarum Collect for Lent I

O Lord, who for our sake didst fast forty days and forty nights : give us grace to use such abstinence, that, our flesh being subdued to the Spirit, we may ever obey thy godly motions in righteousness and true holiness, to thy honour and glory. Who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost; one God, world without end. Amen.
