The Sunday called Quinquagesima
O Lord, who hast taught us that all our doings without charity are nothing worth: 
Send thy Holy Ghost, and pour into our hearts that most excellent gift of charity, 
the very bond of peace and of all virtues, without which whosoever liveth
is counted dead before thee. Grant this for thine only Son Jesus Christ's sake. Amen.

The First Day of Lent - commonly called Ash Wednesday
Almighty and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that thou hast made, and dost forgive 
the sins of all them that are penitent: Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, 
that we worthily lamenting our sins, and acknowledging our wretchedness, 
may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness:  
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The First Sunday in Lent
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.
