    I humbly ask though how much unworthy I am, the permission of our Creator, through the intercession of St. Gerard, to have a stronger faith & sincerity in our hearts while saying how much we trust God's will. Our creator knows what's in our hearts & it is no use telling Him otherwise. He knows how much we want a child amidst doubts & fears because of the miscarriage last year. But it is so powerful & comforting to just lift up all these turmoils within. I pray for the couples who are experiencing the same. Please assist us in our desires to accept what God wills for us. And to know that God's will is always the best.

    St. Gerard, my Husband and I are seeking your intervention with our current pregnancy. We have a beautiful 3 year old daughter for which we are forever grateful for. We have had a very difficult time with 2 previous miscarriages and 1 recent ectopic. Everyone but my Husband and myself have the odds stacked against our little baby. We need a miracle to help our baby grow and thrive. Thank you.

    St. Gerard:

    Thank you once again. I held my one-day-old grandchild in my arms yesterday, the little guy I have been asking you to protect in my novenas these past eight months. He made it and is absolutely perfect. I will never forget you and remember back those 34 years ago as I wore your medal and prayed to conceive his father, my first-born. I had been married nine years and so wanted a child. I include you in my prayers and spread the word for those who dearly want a child. Thank you.

    Please St. Gerard, intercede for me, I humbly pray thee! God knows how heartbroken I was when I miscarried our honeymoon baby last year. What a surprise it is that I am now suddenly pregnant again. I speechless and while I want to rejoice in this gift, I feel hesitant and scared. Please pray for me and my unborn child that I may have a healthy, safe pregnancy and delivery. And to always watch over this baby. Please give my angel baby a hug & kiss from me. May God's will be done.
