Collect 42
1984 Prayer Book
Lord, we beseech thee, grant thy people grace to withstand the temptations of the world, the flesh, and the devil, and with pure hearts and minds to follow thee, the only God; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Contemporary
Almighty God,
whose Son Jesus Christ fasted forty days in the wilderness,
and was tempted as we are, yet without sin:
give us grace to discipline ourselves
in obedience to your Spirit;
and, as you know our weakness,
so may we know your power to save;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

Post Communion Prayer 43
Merciful Lord,
grant your people grace
to withstand the temptations of the world, the flesh and the devil,
and with pure hearts and minds to follow you,
the only God;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Deuteronomy 26. 1-11
When you have come into the land that the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance to possess, and you possess it, and settle in it, you shall take some of the first of all the fruit of the ground, which you harvest from the land that the LORD your God is giving you, and you shall put it in a basket and go to the place that the LORD your God will choose as a dwelling for his name. You shall go to the priest who is in office at that time, and say to him, ‘Today I declare to the LORD your God that I have come into the land that the LORD swore to our ancestors to give us.’ When the priest takes the basket from your hand and sets it down before the altar of the LORD your God, you shall make this response before the LORD your God: ‘A wandering Aramean was my ancestor; he went down into Egypt and lived there as an alien, few in number, and there he became a great nation, mighty and populous. When the Egyptians treated us harshly and afflicted us, by imposing hard labour on us, we cried to the LORD, the God of our ancestors; the LORD heard our voice and saw our affliction, our toil, and our oppression. The LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, with a terrifying display of power, and with signs and wonders; and he brought us into this place and gave us this land, a land flowing with milk and honey. So now I bring the first of the fruit of the ground that you, O LORD, have given me.’ You shall set it down before the LORD your God and bow down before the LORD your God. Then you, together with the Levites and the aliens who reside among you, shall celebrate with all the bounty that the LORD your God has given to you and to your house.

Psalm 91. 1, 2, 9-16 or Psalm 91. 1-11
Biblical text
Psalm 91. 1, 2, 9-16
You who live in the shelter of the Most High, who abide in the shadow of the Almighty, will say to the LORD, ‘My refuge and my fortress; my God, in whom I trust.’ Because you have made the LORD your refuge, the Most High your dwelling-place, no evil shall befall you, no scourge come near your tent.
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, so that you will not dash your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the adder, the young lion and the serpent you will trample under foot.
Those who love me, I will deliver; I will protect those who know my name. When they call to me, I will answer them; I will be with them in trouble, I will rescue them and honour them. With long life I will satisfy them, and show them my salvation.

Psalm 91. 1-11
You who live in the shelter of the Most High, who abide in the shadow of the Almighty, will say to the LORD, ‘My refuge and my fortress; my God, in whom I trust.’ For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence; he will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, or the arrow that flies by day, or the pestilence that stalks in darkness, or the destruction that wastes at noonday.
A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only look with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.
Because you have made the LORD your refuge, the Most High your dwelling-place, no evil shall befall you, no scourge come near your tent.
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.

Pointed Psalm
Psalm 91. 1, 2, 9-16
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the / Most / High :
and abides under the / shadow / of the Al/mighty,
Shall say to the Lord, ‘My refuge / and my / stronghold :
my God, in / whom I / put my / trust.’
Because you have made the / Lord your / refuge :
and the / Most / High your / stronghold,
There shall no evil / happen to / you :
neither shall any / plague come / near your / tent.
For he shall give his angels / charge / over you :
to / keep you in / all your / ways.
They shall bear you / in their / hands :
lest you dash your / foot a/gainst a / stone.
You shall tread upon the / lion and / adder :
the young lion and the serpent you shall / trample / under/foot.
Because they have set their love upon me,
therefore will / I de/liver them :
I will lift them up, be/cause they / know my / name.
They will call upon me and / I will / answer them :
I am with them in trouble,
I will de/liver them and / bring them to / honour.
With long life / will I / satisfy them :
and / show them / my sal/vation.

Psalm 91. 1-11
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the / Most / High :
and abides under the / shadow / of the Al/mighty,
Shall say to the Lord, ‘My refuge / and my / stronghold :
my God, in / whom I / put my / trust.’
For he shall deliver you from the / snare of the / fowler :
and / from the / deadly / pestilence.
He shall cover you with his wings
and you shall be safe / under his / feathers :
his faithfulness shall / be your / shield and / buckler.
You shall not be afraid of any / terror by / night :
nor of the / arrow that / flies by / day;
Of the pestilence that / stalks in / darkness :
nor of the sickness / that des/troys at / noonday.
Though a thousand fall at your side
and ten thousand at / your right / hand :
yet / it shall / not come / near you.
Your eyes have only / to be/hold :
to see the re/ward / of the / wicked.
Because you have made the / Lord your / refuge :
and the / Most / High your / stronghold,
There shall no evil / happen to / you :
neither shall any / plague come / near your / tent.
For he shall give his angels / charge / over you :
to / keep you in / all your / ways.

Romans 10. 8b-13
‘The word is near you, on your lips and in your heart’ (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim); because if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For one believes with the heart and so is justified, and one confesses with the mouth and so is saved. The scripture says, ‘No one who believes in him will be put to shame.’ For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; the same Lord is Lord of all and is generous to all who call on him. For, ‘Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.’

Luke 4. 1-13
Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness, where for forty days he was tempted by the devil. He ate nothing at all during those days, and when they were over, he was famished. The devil said to him, ‘If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become a loaf of bread.’ Jesus answered him, ‘It is written, “One does not live by bread alone.” ’
Then the devil led him up and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. And the devil said to him, ‘To you I will give their glory and all this authority; for it has been given over to me, and I give it to anyone I please. If you, then, will worship me, it will all be yours.’ Jesus answered him, ‘It is written, “Worship the Lord your God, and serve only him.” ’
Then the devil took him to Jerusalem, and placed him on the pinnacle of the temple, saying to him, ‘If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down from here, for it is written, “He will command his angels concerning you, to protect you”, and “On their hands they will bear you up, so that you will not dash your foot against a stone.” ’ Jesus answered him, ‘It is said, “Do not put the Lord your God to the test.” ’When the devil had finished every test, he departed from him until an opportune time.
