GATE of HEAVEN  PRAYER

MEDITATION  -   PRAYER

It gives us great hope in our future as Children of the Light. Regardless of how many years we have left on this earth, and those who are suffering for or walking with those with a terminal illness, reading these passages below helps us set our hearts toward the New Jerusalem.
 

It may be prayed with or without the chaplet.

OUR FATHER
HAIL MARY

  1 V: Then the angel showed me (John) the river of life-giving water, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 
R:     IN MY HEART I SEE THE RIVER OF LIFE, 
RISING FROM THE THRONE OF GOD AND OF THE LAMB, 
FLOWING CRYSTAL-CLEAR...

 2 V: down the middle of its street. On either side of the river grew the tree of life that produces fruit twelve times a year, once each month; the leaves of the trees serve as medicine for the nations.
R:     I SEE THE TREE OF LIFE PRODUCING FRUIT TWELVE TIMES A YEAR, 
ONCE EACH MONTH, THE LEAVES SERVING AS MEDICINE FOR THE NATIONS. 
YOU ALONE HAVE DONE THIS.
+
 3 V: Nothing accursed will be found there anymore. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him.
R:     I BELIEVE YOU WILL ABOLISH THE CURSE OF DESTRUCTION, 
THAT THE THRONE OF GOD AND OF THE LAMB ARE IN THE CITY. 
I, YOUR SERVANT WILL WORSHIP YOU.
