    I pray to you Saint Gerard that you bless my husband and I with the gift of life. We have been trying to concieve and so far have been unsuccessful. We pray that you reach out to us and guide us through the process of creating life and experience the joys of becoming parents. We pray to you Saint Gerard, please bless us with a child. Amen

    Dear St. Gerard,
    I have recently heard about you and after reading previous comments I see that my "problem" is so minute compared to theirs. I am just worried she may go past her due date. She is my first baby and she is due in 5 days but I am so anxious to have her in my arms already! But I realize our Lord Jesus Christ knows when it is best for her to arrive. But if possible I beg you to please interfere for my husband and I before our Lord and ask Him to please have our Sophie arrive here soon, and very healthy too of course. I will also keep in my prayers the comments other peole have wrote on this page so that they too may conceive a child and carry a healthy baby through labor!
    Thank you for listening to me, Amen.

    St Gerard,
    Please hear my prayers for my husband, my unborn baby, and myself. We are in the 6th week of our 3rd pregancy. Unfortunately, the first 2 were unsuccessful and I feel each one took a piece of my heart with it when it went. I ask you to PLEASE intercede before God for me and help me to stay calm and not worry about EVERYTHING as I have been. I had an ultrasound yesterday and for the FIRST time EVER heard my baby's heartbeat. Now today, I'm having slight cramping and spotting and I am VERY scared. I pray that you and God help me to be able to carry my baby to full term and have a happy, healthy baby, to be able to raise him/her up in the church and in our faith. Thank you for allowing me this chance again.

    I had a miscarriage last year and had been desperately trying again a few months later. By chance I came across a book telling about you as a patron of motherhood and I have been praying to you ever since. A few months later, much earlier I dared hope, I conceived again and I am now almost 9 weeks pregnant. I continue to pray to u for a safe pregnancy, a healthy baby and eventually a safe delivery. Thanks again

    Dear St. Gerard,

    It's been five long years since me and my loving husband have been trying to conceive a baby. Please pray to our good lord on behalf of us. Please pray that the fertility treatments will be successful and that we will be blessed with a healthy beautiful baby soon. Thank you St. Gerard for your intercession.

    I've just realised that my prayer of thanks is not on this site. You heard each prayer over my pregnancy, you prayed with me to our Good Lord Jesus. And in March my little boy arrived, healthy and gorgeous! Praise God. Thank you for your prayers o St Gerard!

    St Gerard, my dear friend has lost many little angels from her womb. God has chosen to bless her with another pregnancy and she and her husband are so excited. But she is bleeding and they can't figure out why. Please, please implore our Heavenly Father to protect this little life within her. She is already an amazing mother and will be again if she can carry to term. Speak to Jesus and remind Him of her Faith in His Divine Will. If it be His will, let her carry a healthy baby into the world. Please pray with us, Dearest Jesus hear our prayers brought to you through St Gerard. You will be done

    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 that at our ultrasound today the technician and doctor do not find the suspected echogenic spot on our daughter's bowels and that no other complications be identified.
    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.
