A Collect for Ember Wednesday

Look down favorably, we beseech Thee, O Lord, upon the devotion of Thy people:  that they, whose bodies are mortified by abstinence, may, by the fruit of Thy grace, be refreshed in mind; through Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with Thee and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.  -- Daily Divine Service Book, p. 116.
