    St. Gerard Majella! St. of expectant mothers, please pray to JESUS for me. I have faith that I am pregnant with a set of triplets (2 boys and a girl). My daughter will be 3 years in November and I had been trying to get pregnant. I dont want her to be an only child. Please St. Gerard, pray to JESUS to grant us our desire. I promise to print copies of your 'life time 'as a saint and share it to people, especially mothers after I give birth successfully, as I tell them my story. I invoked you when I was pregnant with my daughter and you did not fail me. I know you'll not fail me now. JESUS hear our prayers!!! St. Gerard pray for us!?

    Thank you Saint Gerard for our chromosonal and genetic testing showing no abnormalities. I am grateful. Please help my baby grow so when it is born it can handle the open heart surgery it has to have. Please help my baby recover quickly from the heart defect and surgery so my husband and I can bring our baby home. We are both 35 and have wanted babies for many years. Thank you for watching over and protecting my baby.

    Dear St. Gerard, Powerful intercessor and wonder worker of our day . . . .please help my husband and I conceive and deliver a beautiful and healthy baby. We've been struggling with infertility now for 3 years, and have painfully witnessed the healthy deliveries of babies in friends and family all around us. Along with the Lord, please help open my womb, and heal my heart, so that I can conceive a miracle baby, despite what I've been told by the medical doctors.

    St. Gerard, I join with others who are trying to conceive, and ask that you hear each prayer and bless these families with children, as you had answered our prayers 21 years ago. I beg of you now to intercede for the health of our daughter, who has fallen ill to an eating disorder. Please give her the courage to seek help and be freed from the bondage of this disease. I thank you great patron saint, Amen.

    Oh good St. Gerard, powerful intercessor and wonder worker of our day, I call upon thee and seek thy aid... Please bless us and allow us to conceive and birth a second healthy miracle child after years of infertility. Our beloved miracle 1st child was conceived with your intercession, and we so wish a sibling. Please intercede to God on our family's humble behalf, and grant our deepest heart's desire. Give us strength and grace to see a pregnancy through to a healthy birth. Please also grant my dear friend Brenda the grace to conceive and birth a healthy miracle baby as well. Thank you St. Gerard for generations of family blessings you have bestowed upon us, as a result of your gracious intercession. Amen.

    Dear St. Gerard,
    My husband and I have been trying to conceive for several years. We have broken through barriers such as blocked tubes, and now we have found out that my husband has a motility problem. We are now undergoing some infertility treatments, and have a procedure scheduled. Please pray for us that this procedure works, and we conceive a healthy beautiful baby.
