The Door of Heaven.

by A. E. Burgett.

PREFACE.

This little Manual is intended for the use of young people, and is therefore short and very simple. The object of the compiler is to place in the hands of candidates for Confirmation a little book that may be a help to them in their daily life, as well as at the Service of Holy Communion.

Grateful thanks are tendered to the holders of copyright for permission to make use of the hymns printed at the end of the book. Also, the author begs to acknowledge ideas derived from examining similar Manuals, especially “The Narrow Way,” “Prayers for Boys,” “Help to Worship,” and “Holy Communion” by Bishop How.

It is earnestly hoped that this little book may, with the blessing of G.o.d, prove of service to those for whom it has been written, both in helping their devotions, and in deepening their spiritual life.

FOREWORD

BY THE RIGHT REVEREND MacADAM HARDING,

BISHOP OF QU’APPELLE.

A little book that will help the young and busy people in North-West Canada to pray earnestly, day by day, and regularly make a good Communion, must receive a warm welcome from the Bishop of a Diocese where the great majority of the people are both young and busy.

I know the earnest desire of the compiler to help our young men and women to draw near to G.o.d in Prayer and Sacrament, and I hope many of them will find herein the very a.s.sistance they need.

M. M. QU’APPELLE.

THE DOOR OF HEAVEN

DAILY PRAYERS

MORNING

Kneel down and say:–

In the presence of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Amen.

_Try to realize that you are in the presence of G.o.d, and then say_:–

Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespa.s.ses, As we forgive them that trespa.s.s against us. And lead us not into temptation; But deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, The power, and the glory, For ever and ever. Amen.

I thank Thee, O heavenly Father, for keeping me safe through the past night, and giving me rest and sleep. Bless me, I beseech Thee, during this day, and guard me from all dangers, both to body and soul, for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen.

{8}

Bless, O Lord, my father and mother, my brothers and sisters (and others whom you wish to pray for). Keep them safe and well, and help them, for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen.

O Lord, our heavenly Father, Almighty and ever-lasting G.o.d, who hast safely brought me to the beginning of this day; defend me in the same with Thy mighty power; and grant that this day I may fall into no sin, neither run into any kind of danger; but that all my doings may be ordered by Thy governance to do always that is righteous in Thy sight, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

May G.o.d the Father, G.o.d the Son, and G.o.d the Holy Ghost bless, preserve, and keep me now and for evermore. Amen.

MID-DAY.

_Always try to think of G.o.d for a minute at mid-day; say,_,

O Father Almighty, whose Son our Lord Jesus Christ did at this hour bear our sins in His own body upon the Cross, have mercy upon me, help me, bless me, and be with me now and at the hour of my death, through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

EVENING.

Kneel down and say:–

In the presence of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Amen.

{9}

_Try to realize that you are in the very presence of G.o.d, and then say_:–

Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespa.s.ses, As we forgive them that trespa.s.s against us. And lead us not into temptation; But deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, The power, and the glory, For ever and ever. Amen.

O Heavenly Father, I thank Thee for having kept me safe through this day, and for all Thy other mercies to me. Show me how I have sinned against Thee this day, and make me sorry for my sins.

_Then try to remember your sins of the day, and ask yourself such questions at these_:–

What wrong thing have I done to-day?

What evil words have I spoken?

What bad thoughts have I given way to?

_Then ask G.o.d’s forgiveness, and say_:–

Forgive me, O G.o.d, for what I have done wrong to-day, and help me to do better for the future, for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen.

“The Body of our Lord Jesus Christ, which was given for thee, preserve thy body and soul unto everlasting life. Take and eat this in remembrance that Christ died for thee, and feed on Him in thy heart by faith with thanksgiving.

[After the words “everlasting life” you can say “_Amen_” softly. And at the end you can say in your heart:–

“_Lord, I believe: help Thou mine unbelief._”]

{39}

_The Minister, when he gives you the Cup, will say,_

“The Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, which was shed for thee, preserve thy body and soul unto everlasting life. Drink this in remembrance that Christ’s Blood was shed for thee, and be thankful.

[Say _Amen_ devoutly, as before, after the words “ever-lasting life,”

and at the end you may say in your heart:–

“_Thanks and Praise be to Thee, O Lord!_”

Wait until the one next to you has received, and then return to your place and kneel, thanking G.o.d again for His mercies to you. Pray that you may not fall back into sin. Say:–

O G.o.d of all mercy, may this most blessed Sacrament which I have received convey to my soul grace and peace, that being made clean, I may sin no more. I ask this for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen.

[If you still have time, you may use now the Hymns given at the end of this book.]

When all have communicated, the Minister shall return to the Lord’s Table, and reverently place upon it what remaineth of the consecrated elements, covering the same with a fair linen cloth.

Then shall the Priest say the Lord’s Prayer, the people repeating after him every Pet.i.tion.

_Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our {40} daily bread. And forgive us our trespa.s.ses, as we forgive them that trespa.s.s against us. And lead us not into temptation; But deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, The power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen._

After shall be said as followeth,

O Lord and heavenly Father, we Thy humble servants entirely desire Thy fatherly goodness mercifully to accept this our Sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving; most humbly beseeching Thee to grant that, by the merits and death of Thy Son Jesus Christ, and through faith in His Blood, we and all Thy whole Church may obtain remission of our sins, and all other benefits of His pa.s.sion. And here we offer and present unto Thee, O Lord, ourselves, our souls, and bodies to be a reasonable, holy, and lively sacrifice unto Thee; humbly beseeching Thee, that all we who are partakers of this holy Communion, may be fulfilled with Thy grace and heavenly benediction. And although we be unworthy, through our manifold sins, to offer unto Thee any sacrifice, yet we beseech Thee to accept this our bounden duty and service; not weighing our merits, but pardoning our offences, through Jesus Christ our Lord: by whom, and with whom, in the unity of the Holy {41} Ghost, all honour and glory be unto Thee, O Father Almighty, world without end. _Amen_.

_Or this,_

Almighty and everliving G.o.d, we most heartily thank Thee, for that Thou dost vouchsafe to feed us, who have duly received these holy mysteries, with the spiritual food of the most precious Body and Blood of Thy Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ; and dost a.s.sure us thereby of thy favour and goodness towards us; and that we are very members incorporate in the mystical Body of Thy Son, which is the blessed company of all faithful people; and are also heirs through hope of Thy everlasting kingdom, by the merits of the most precious death and pa.s.sion of Thy dear Son. And we most humbly beseech Thee, O heavenly Father, so to a.s.sist us with Thy grace, that we may continue in that holy fellowship, and do all such good works, as Thou hast prepared for us to walk in, through Jesus Christ our Lord; to whom with Thee and the Holy Ghost, be all honour and glory, world without end. _Amen_.

THE GLORIA IN EXCELSIS.

Then shall be said or sung,

_Glory be to G.o.d on high, and in earth peace, good will towards men.

We praise Thee, we bless {42} Thee, we worship Thee, we glorify Thee, we give thanks to Thee for Thy great glory, O Lord G.o.d, heavenly King, G.o.d the Father Almighty_.

_O Lord, the only-begotten Son Jesu Christ; O Lord G.o.d, Lamb of G.o.d, Son of the Father, that takest away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us. Thou that takest away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us. Thou that takest away the sins of the world, receive our prayer.

Thou that sittest at the right hand of G.o.d the Father, have mercy upon us_.

_For Thou only art holy; Thou only art the Lord; Thou only, O Christ, with the Holy Ghost, art most high in the Glory of G.o.d the Father.

Amen_.

THE BLESSING.

The peace of G.o.d, which pa.s.seth all understanding, keep your hearts and minds in the knowledge and love of G.o.d, and of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord; and the blessing of G.o.d Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, be amongst you and remain with you always. _Amen_.

[Do not be in a hurry to rise from your knees. Thank G.o.d once more for all He has done for you. Pray again for help to persevere. Say one or more of the following thanksgivings and prayers:–]

{43}

THANKSGIVING AFTER HOLY COMMUNION.

I give Thee thanks, O Lord, holy Father, Almighty, everlasting G.o.d, who hast refreshed me with the most holy Body and Blood of Thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord; and I pray that this Sacrament which I have received may be to the strengthening of my body and soul unto life eternal, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

O G.o.d, who hast in Thy great mercy permitted me to draw near this day to the blessed Sacrament of the Body and Blood of Thy dear Son; I give Thee hearty thanks and praise for this Thy goodness. Lord, I thank Thee: help Thou my unthankfulness. Teach me more and more to feel and know the richness and freedom of Thy love. Teach me more and more to prize and to long for this holy feast of heavenly Food. Give me an ever-thankful heart, that so I may live ever a life of thankfulness, serving Thee, not as a slave, but as a loving child, in the spirit of adoption, and as sharing in the glorious liberty of Thy children. Oh, keep me from falling back; lead me onward by Thy grace; and bring me at last to the unveiled presence of my Saviour in heaven, through the same Thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Praise the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me praise His holy Name.

Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His {44} benefits; who forgiveth all thy sin, and healeth all thine infirmities; who saveth thy life from destruction, and crowneth thee with mercy and loving kindness.

“Thanks be unto G.o.d for His unspeakable gift!” Amen.

May G.o.d the Father, G.o.d the Son, and G.o.d the Holy Ghost, bless, preserve, and keep me, now and for evermore. Amen.

{45}

[Then the alms are collected while one or more of the Offertory Sentences are read. Always try to give {25} something at the Offertory, no matter how small the amount is, but never stay away from the service because you have nothing to give. When you have made your offering, kneel down, and say:–

_All that is in heaven and in the earth is Thine. All things come of Thee, and of Thine Own have I given Thee_.]

[Ill.u.s.tration: THE CRUCIFIXION.]

THE OFFERTORY SENTENCES.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. _St. Matt._ v.

Lay not up for yourselves treasure upon the earth; where the rust and moth doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven; where neither rust nor moth doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through and steal. _St. Matt._ vi.

Whatsoever ye would that men should do unto you, even so do unto them; for this is the Law and the Prophets. _St. Matt._ vii.

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. _St. Matt._ vii.

Zacchaeus stood forth, and said unto the Lord, Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have done any {26} wrong to any man, I restore fourfold. _St. Luke_ xix.

Who goeth a warfare at any time of his own cost? Who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit thereof? Or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock? 1 _Cor._ ix.

If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great matter if we shall reap your worldly things? 1 _Cor._ ix.

Do ye not know, that they who minister about holy things live of the sacrifice; and they who wait at the altar are partakers with the altar?

Even so hath the Lord also ordained, that they who preach the Gospel should live of the Gospel. 1 _Cor._ ix.

He that soweth little shall reap little; and he that soweth plenteously shall reap plenteously. Let every man do according as he is disposed in his heart, not grudgingly, or of necessity; for G.o.d loveth a cheerful giver. 2 _Cor._ ix.

Let him that is taught in the Word minister unto him that teacheth in all good things. Be not deceived, G.o.d is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth that shall he reap. _Gal._ vi.

While we have time, let us do good unto all men; and specially unto them that are of the household of faith. _Gal._ vi.

{27}

G.o.dliness is great riches, if a man be content with that he hath: for we brought nothing into the world, neither may we carry anything out.

1 _Tim._ vi.

Charge them who are rich in this world, that they be ready to give, and glad to distribute; laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may attain eternal life. 1 _Tim._ vi.

G.o.d is not unrighteous, that He will forget your works, and labour that proceedeth of love; which love ye have showed for His Name’s sake, who have ministered unto the saints, and yet do minister. _Heb._ vi.

To do good and to distribute forget not; for with such sacrifices G.o.d is well pleased. _Heb._ xiii.

Whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his compa.s.sion from him, how dwelleth the love of G.o.d in him? 1 _St. John_ iii.

Give alms of thy goods, and never turn thy face from any poor man; and then the face of the Lord shall not be turned away from thee. _Tobit_ iv.

Be merciful after thy power. If thou hast much, give plenteously: if thou hast little, do thy diligence gladly to give of that little: for so gatherest thou thyself a good reward in the day of necessity.

_Tobit_ iv.

{28}

He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord: and look, what he layeth out, it shall be paid him again. _Prov._ xix.

Blessed be the man that provideth for the sick and needy: the Lord shall deliver him in the time of trouble. _Psalm_ xli.

Whilst these sentences are in reading, the Deacons, Church-wardens, or other fit person appointed for that purpose, shall receive the Alms for the Poor, and other devotions of the people, in a decent basin to be provided by the Parish for that purpose; and reverently bring it to the Priest, who shall humbly present and place it upon the holy Table.

And when there is a Communion, the Priest shall then place upon the Table so much Bread and Wine as he shall think sufficient.

After which done, the Priest shall say,

Let us pray for the whole state of Christ’s Church militant here in earth.

Almighty and everliving G.o.d, who by Thy holy Apostle hast taught us to make prayers, and supplications, and to give thanks for all men; We humbly beseech Thee most mercifully to accept our alms and oblations, and to receive these our prayers which we offer unto Thy Divine Majesty: beseeching Thee to inspire continually the universal {29} Church with the spirit of truth, unity, and concord: and grant, that all they that do confess Thy holy Name may agree in the truth of Thy holy Word, and live in unity, and G.o.dly love. We beseech Thee also to save and defend all Christian kings, princes, and governors; and specially Thy servant George, our King, that under him we may be G.o.dly and quietly governed: And grant unto his whole council, and to all that are put in authority under him, that they may truly and indifferently minister justice, to the punishment of wickedness and vice, and to the maintenance of Thy true religion and virtue. Give grace, O heavenly Father, to all Bishops and Curates, that they may, both by their life and doctrine, set forth Thy true and lively Word, and rightly and duly administer Thy holy Sacraments. And to all Thy people give Thy heavenly grace; and especially to this congregation here present; that with meek heart and due reverence they may hear and receive Thy holy Word, truly serving Thee in holiness and righteousness all the days of their life. And we most humbly beseech Thee of Thy goodness, O Lord, to comfort and succour all them who, in this transitory life, are in trouble, sorrow, need, sickness, or any other adversity. And we also bless Thy holy {30} Name for all Thy servants departed this life in Thy faith and fear; beseeching Thee to give us grace so to follow their good examples, that with them we may be partakers of Thy heavenly kingdom: Grant this, O Father, for Jesus Christ’s sake, our only Mediator and Advocate. _Amen_.

THE EXHORTATION.

[When the Exhortation is read attend to it very carefully, for it is full of instruction. You will find it in your Prayer-book.]

THE INVITATION.

Then shall the Priest say to them that come to receive the Holy Communion,

Ye that do truly and earnestly repent you of your sins, and are in love and charity with your neighbours, and intend to lead a new life, following the commandments of G.o.d, and walking from henceforth in His holy ways; Draw near with faith, and take this holy Sacrament to your comfort; and make your humble confession to Almighty G.o.d, meekly kneeling upon your knees.

Then shall this general Confession be made, in the name of all those that are minded to receive the holy Communion, by one of the Ministers; both he and all the people kneeling humbly upon their knees, and saying:–

{31}

_Almighty G.o.d, Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Maker of all things, Judge of all men; We acknowledge and bewail our manifold sins and wickedness, which we, from time to time, most grievously have committed, by thought, word, and deed, against Thy Divine Majesty, provoking most justly Thy wrath and indignation against us. We do earnestly repent, and are heartily sorry for these our misdoings; The remembrance of them is grievous unto us; The burden of them is intolerable. Have mercy upon us, have mercy upon us, most merciful Father; For Thy Son our Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, forgive us all that is past; And grant that we may ever hereafter serve and please thee in newness of life, to the honour and glory of Thy name; Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen_.

Then shall the Priest (or the Bishop, being present) stand up, and turning himself to the people, p.r.o.nounce this Absolution.

Almighty G.o.d, our heavenly Father, who of His great mercy hath promised forgiveness of sins to all them that with hearty repentance and true faith turn unto Him; Have mercy upon you; pardon and deliver you from all your sins; confirm and strengthen you in all goodness; and bring you to everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. _Amen_.

Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespa.s.ses, as we forgive them that trespa.s.s against us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. Amen.

_The Collect_.

Almighty G.o.d, unto Whom all hearts be open, all desires known, and from Whom no secrets are hid; cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of Thy holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love Thee, and worthily {20} magnify Thy holy Name; through Christ our Lord. _Amen_.

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS.

[_As each commandment is read, ask yourself,_

“Have I kept this commandment?”

_Then join with all your heart in the words,_

“_Lord, have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law_.”]

_Minister_.

G.o.d spake these words, and said; I am the Lord thy G.o.d: Thou shalt have none other G.o.ds but me.

_People. Lord, have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law_.

{21}

_Minister_. Thou shalt not make to thyself any graven image, nor the likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or in the earth beneath, or in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down to them, nor worship them: for I the Lord thy G.o.d am a jealous G.o.d, and visit the sins of the fathers upon the children, unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me, and show mercy unto thousands in them that love Me, and keep My commandments.

_People. Lord, have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law_.

_Minister_. Thou shalt not take the Name of the Lord thy G.o.d in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His Name in vain.

_People. Lord, have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law_.

Remember that thou keep holy the Sabbath day. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all that thou hast to do; but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy G.o.d. In it thou shalt do no manner of work, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, thy man-servant, and thy maid-servant, thy cattle, and the stranger that is within thy gates.

For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the seventh day, and hallowed it.

_People. Lord, have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law_.

_Minister_. Honour thy father and thy mother; that thy days may be long in the land, which the Lord thy G.o.d giveth thee.

_People. Lord, have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law_.

_Minister_. Thou shalt do no murder.

_People. Lord, have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law_.

_Minister_. Thou shalt not commit adultery.

{22}

_People. Lord, have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law_.

_Minister_. Thou shalt not steal.

_People. Lord, have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law_.

_Minister_. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

_People. Lord, have mercy upon us, and incline our hearts to keep this law_.

_Minister_. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his servant, nor his maid, nor his ox, nor his a.s.s, nor anything that is his.

_People. Lord, have mercy upon us, and write all these Thy laws in our hearts, we beseech Thee_.

Then shall follow one of these two Collects for the King.

LET US PRAY.

Almighty G.o.d, whose kingdom is ever-lasting, and power infinite; Have mercy upon the whole Church; and so rule the heart of Thy chosen servant GEORGE, our King and Governor, that he (knowing whose minister he is) may above all things seek Thy honour and glory: and that we, and all his subjects (duly considering Whose authority he hath) may faithfully serve, honour, and humbly obey him, in Thee, and for Thee, {23} according to Thy blessed Word and ordinance, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Who with Thee and the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth, ever one G.o.d, world without end. Amen.

_Or,_

Almighty and Everlasting G.o.d, we are taught by Thy holy Word that the hearts of kings are in Thy rule and governance, and that Thou dost dispose and turn them as it seemeth best to Thy G.o.dly wisdom: we humbly beseech Thee so to dispose and govern the heart of GEORGE Thy servant, our King and Governor, that, in all his thoughts, words, and works, he may ever seek Thy honour and glory, and study to preserve Thy people committed to his charge, in wealth, peace, and G.o.dliness. Grant this, O merciful Father, for Thy dear Son’s sake, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Here follow

THE COLLECT, EPISTLE, AND GOSPEL.

[If you have your Prayer Book with you, find out the Collect, Epistle, and Gospel of the day. Before the Gospel say, “_Glory be to Thee, O Lord_”, and after the Gospel, “_Thanks be to Thee, O Lord_.”]

{24}

THE CREED.

_I believe in one G.o.d the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, And of all things visible and invisible:_

_And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of G.o.d, Begotten of His Father before all worlds, G.o.d of G.o.d, Light of Light, Very G.o.d of very G.o.d, Begotten, not made, Being of one substance with the Father; By Whom all things were made, Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven, And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, And was made man, And was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate. He suffered and was buried, And the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures, And ascended into heaven, And sitteth on the right hand of the Father. And he shall come again with glory to judge both the quick and the dead; Whose kingdom shall have no end_.

_And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life, Who proceedeth from the Father and the Son, Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified, Who spake by the Prophets. And I believe one Catholic and Apostolic Church. I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins, and I look for the Resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen_.
