The Collect for the week of the Fourth Sunday after Epiphany:

O God, who knowest us to be set in the midst of so many and great dangers, that by reason of the frailty of our nature we cannot always stand upright; Grant to us such strength and protection, as may support us in all dangers, and carry us through all temptations; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

By the way, do read about St Gilbert of Sempringham today - he may not have raised geese from the dead or slain Vikings, but he was a pretty amazing man (a Lincolnshire saint! the only English founder of a religious order! imprisoned for aiding Thomas Becket! and, um... Robert Mannyng was a Gilbertine. All good reasons to be interested in St Gilbert.)
