    I am grateful and thankful for all of Gods blessings. St. Gerard, I am 18 weeks pregnant with a precious baby girl. I am praying for a miracle and asking others to pray for my baby to be healed from heart disease and help me to be able to carry her to full term. I know that God will heal my baby's heart and help her to be strong, healthy, and normal In Jesus name, I just have to believe and have Faith. Please grant me pregnancy mercies and let my baby grow healthy to full term without any pregnancy complications or abnormalities. My baby will be normal,no defects physically,emotionally,mentally and healthy in Jesus name. My baby will be smart and make straight A's in school and will be loved by everyone. I know that she is beautiful inside and out because she is a child of God. I love you Jesus and I thank you for all that you do. Let no weapon formed against me or my baby shall prosper in Jesus Name. I pray for all mothers through this challenging time; may the Lord be with you. God is faithful and he hears all prayers. Never doubt or give up..

    I would like to add my little story in praise of Saint Gerard.
    My mother lost 3 children between my older brother and me. Whilst pregnant
    with me she became very worried that her pregnanacy would not go full time again.
    She mentioned this to a nun collecting alms and the nun told her about
    Saint Gerard, gave her a Saint Gerard medal and told her to do a novena to
    the saint. My mother did this, all went well and here I am 63 years later
    still going strong.
    My christian name of course, is Gerard. Its the only forename I have. My mother
    did this to make sure I couldnt change it even if I wanted to.

    God Bless!

    Please pray for us O St Gerard. I just found out that I am 4 weeks pregnant. This is my 4th pregnancy as I have lost 3 babies previously (10 weeks - Gabrielle, 18 weeks Mikael and 5 weeks Raphael). Please bless us so that this will be a healthy pregnancy, with no complication and I can carry this baby to term. All we want is a healthy baby, physically and mentally. Please also pray for my friends who are also trying to conceive. They really are good people and will make such wonderful parents.

    O Most Blessed Trinity, I your unworthy creature, thank you for all the gifts and privileges which you have granted to Saint Gerard, especially for those virtues with which you have adorned him on earth and the glory which you impart to him in heaven.
    Accomplish your work, O Lord, for the greater glory of the Holy Church.
    Glorify him before men and women and through his merits, in union with those of Jesus and Mary, grant me the grace for which I ask to be blessed with another child, a sibling for my daughter and to be blessed with a safe delivery.
    And you, my powerful intercessor St. Gerard, always so ready to help those who have recourse to you, pray also for me.
    Prostrate yourself before the throne of Divine Mercy and please do not leave it without being heard. To you I confide this important and urgent affair.
    Graciously take my cause in hand and let me not end this novena without having experienced in some way the effects of your intercession.
    Amen.

    Dearest St Gerard, I pray so hard to you now and ask that our marriage will be blessed with a healthy baby. We have endured a long journey of road bumps and dissapointments and we pray so hard that this journey will lead us to a family. We offer up our sufferings and believe that when our time is right we shall have a baby. Please bless all couples who are struggling to conceive and that they find the courage to keep going..after all it is a miracle - but never give up faith. I pray to you now St Gerard that you give me the strength to continue this journey and be as supportive as I can for my husband who wants a baby as much as I do and to know that he is suffering as well. God Bless xxx

    Thank you for allowing me to conceive and granting me the gift of life within me. St Gerard Majella, please stand before the Altar of our Heavenly Father and ask Him to send His Spirit to bless and protect this precious life within me. Help the bleeding to cease and the little heartbeat to remain strong. Jesus protect us, let this nursery of life within me bring a life You Willed, into this world. Mother Mary, you know my fears. I implore you to ask favours from your Son, that we may know the life within us for years to come. St Gerard, known to so many, fervent follower and believer of Jesus Christ, I ask your prayers of intercession and beg your hand in this pregnancy. Speak to Our Lord for me, that we may together approach Him for His work of Divine Intervention. In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen
