    Dear St. Gerard
    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.

    St. Gerard,

    Please help me have a healthy successful pregnancy. We struggled to conceive this child and are worried that it may not be strong enough to endure the entire 9 months. Please intercede for us that the baby may grow strong and healthy and that I remain strong and healthy throughout the pregnancy and beyond so that I may raise this child to love God, Jesus his Savior, Mother Mary and you.
    Amen!!

    Most faithful St. Gerard,
    Thank you so much for your prayers and intercession on my and my baby's behalf. We have just learned that our unborn daughter, our little Marie Gerardine, is healthy and out of danger. All through this dreadful period, I felt the effects of your intercession and was incredibly comforted and consoled by my prayers to you and to our Holy Virgin mother Marie blessed be her name. Most especially, thank you because just as I prayed all medical procedures went well with no harm to my baby. Thank you for sitting in that empty chair in the hospital's waiting room and for walking with me every step of the way. I felt your comforting presence there. Thank you Blessed Virgin Marie, you can see inside my heart and you know just how much I love you. Thank you for giving us this little girl who will remind us daily of your mercy, your love and compassion. May Jesus's name be blessed forever and may we give glory to God every time we say our daughters's name. The glory be. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it is now, as it has always been and forever will be, amen.

    Dear St Gerard,
    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your prayers! I am now almost 6 weeks pregnant, and I am asking you now to pray that our baby stays healthy. My husband and I have been under quite a bit of stress and I don't want it to affect our baby's health. Please pray that we will be strong and that our baby will grow and be healthy and strong. We will do everything in our power to make sure that happens. I will forever be grateful to you for your prayers. I also want to ask you to pray for the heartbroken wives that are still longing to become pregnant; I know how bad they are hurting, and I want them to know the same joy of finally seeing a positive test. Please pray for them. Thank you.
