    Dear St. Gerard,
    Please pray for our family. My daughter-in-law had a stillborn child at eight and a half months pregnant. They are now expecting a baby in Oct. We pray he/she will be healthy. My daughter has been trying to get pregnant for more than a year. They desperately want to have a child. And now my niece is 12 weeks pregnant and has found out her baby will have major disabilities. Dear St. Gerard, please ask our Lord to guide us. Please help all three couples in their time of need. All three couples are church-going couples...praying to the Lord for strength. Please help.

    Dear St Gerard,
    My husband , our daughter and I are homeless. We have been living in my office for almost 3 years. It has been so hard trying to sneak around the building with out letting others know of out situation. We bathe in the ladies or mens room. We cook our food in microwaves, Money is so limited. The economy is so bad. I cant get any work but my husband does work a full time job. His salery isn't enough to do much with after rent and utilities and car insurance and foods. We cant save because there just isn't any money to save, I am an epileptic so being self employed is about the best that I can do. We would love to be able to move into a home but with no credit or even worse bad credit we can see to move forward in our lives. I would love to find housing that is safe and affordable and find a kind and understanding land lord who is willing to help us. We will also love to have another child to love as well. Please hear my prayers and help us. Its so sad not knowing if we are going to be found out and than forced to leave the only shelter we have. Please prayer for us and keep us safe. I ask this in Jesus name, Amen

    I pray for your protection and safety of my first baby. After 3 losses, I pray that my 18 weeks baby grow to be healthy until my due date on Sept. 4. Please free me of any worries that I am feeling right now. If I develop gestational diabetes, please let it be not life threatening or not pose harm to me and my baby. I pray for my upcoming routine ultrasound that there will be no complication to me and my baby. This I pray to you St. Gerard and to Mother Teresa, Amen.
