There are no built in actions that will do that, but you might want to take a look at Power Automate UI Flows. Using a UI Flow you can easily program a browser to login and download the file you want.  Then call the UI Flow from a regular recurrence Flow.  Here's an Introduction to UI Flows.

Hi @cbarnhart,

 

Maybe this is what you want, this is a post that downloads a file through HTTP request:

You can use component Upload file from URL as shown below to store that document in One Drive and then you can retrieve the same to use accordingly.
