    Please St. Gerard, intercede for me, I humbly pray thee! God knows how heartbroken I was when I miscarried our honeymoon baby last year. What a surprise it is that I am now suddenly pregnant again. I speechless and while I want to rejoice in this gift, I feel hesitant and scared. Please pray for me and my unborn child that I may have a healthy, safe pregnancy and delivery. And to always watch over this baby. Please give my angel baby a hug & kiss from me. May God's will be done.

    Dear St Gerard,
    Please pray for my son and his wife and their unborn child of 21 weeks. She is in hospital at the moment at risk from having a miscarraige. They found out on Wednesday they are having a boy. They are devastated at the thought of losing my little grandson. Please intercede for this little boy and shield him from harm until he is safely born. For the glory of God.

    Dear St. Gerard, I'm almost 37 weeks pregnant. Was diagnosed with HPV on my 3-4th month. One of the reasons why this pregnancy of mine had been stressful. I underwent cauterization last October and was supposedly scheduled for another session this coming Sunday so that I can deliver normally without getting my son infected. I prayed your Novena for 9 consecutive days for 2 cycles now. Today I had a visit with my OB the warts are getting smaller and some disappeared. My cauterization was cancelled since my immune system is fighting the virus itself. And I remembered those nights I prayed for you're intercession. Thanks for this miracle St. Gerard! I'm about to delivery anytime now Dear GERARD. Please make my delivery easy and normal and that my son will be healthy. THANK YOU DEAR SAINT GERARD!!! THANK YOU PRAYING FOR ME AND MY SON!

    It has long been my most fervent desire to be a mother. My husband and I are of the opinion that if it is God's will, then we will become parents. Tonight, as I was looking through a purse my mother made over 40 years ago, I found a medal of St. Gerard. My mother must have carried this medal during one of her early pregnancies, before she found that she was unable to carry a baby to term. Years later, my parents adopted me and then my little sister. Finding this medal tonight must surely be a sign. I ask the intercession of blessed Saint Gerard to bring about the child I know in my heart is waiting for me. Through Jesus Christ, amen.

    Dear St. Gerard, It's my last month of pregnancy and I want to have peace of mind. I've been through depression since day 1 and up to this very day i'm still troubled with different things and of the future. Please help me, pray for me that I may accept the things that I cannot change. God knows very well what my heart trully desires but if it's not for His greater glory help me to accept it wholeheartedly and may he grant me patience so that I'll hold on until the day that I finally know the reason why things didn't happen the way we planned and the way that I want things to be. I begged of you St. Gerard. Please pray for me and my son.

    Dear St. Gerard Majella, I'm already 34 weeks pregnant now. I had a very emotional pregnancy since I have to go through it alone, without a husband. I'm thankful that God has blessed me with a very supportive family-a mother who became my strength to face everything. I am afraid that the emotional torture/depression that I went through affected my baby. I pray to you St. Gerard to grant my son good health and that may he grow up to be a God fearing person and a faithful Christian. I also ask Dear St. Gerard for a normal and safe delivery. Please pray for us St. Gerard!

    Saint Gerard please pray for my husband and I that we are healed of whatever is preventing us from having children. I ask of you that you will pray prayers of intercession that we are able to have a baby this year and more children in the future to be raised in God's light and love. Thank you for listening to our petition and I pray for all of those who are having difficulty conceiving!
