    Dear St. Gerard, please help us to conceive a healthy baby. I suffered a miscarriage in April and I am so sad. I have always had trouble with fertility and this was my second miscarriage. I am so thankful for the blessing of my three year old son (he means the world to me!), and I want another child so much. Thank you. <3

    St. Gerard, please bless my husband and I with the miracle of conceiving a child this year. We have been trying for nearly 3 years with no success. Each month that comes and goes without being blessed with this miracle is becoming more and more depressing. We are praying for this blessing from God and hope that you St. Gerard can help us. Amen

    Dear St. Gerard, After trying to concieve for many many years now and from going through nearly every type of fertility treatment conceivable, my husband and I are at last expecting our first child. We are married 11 years and we thank God, his Blessed Mother and the saints every day for the gift of being pregnant. Even though I am so nervous and I trust in what God has in store for us - I pray to you now Saint Gerard and ask that I will carry our baby healthily throughout the pregnancy and that he will be born healthly and well. I give thanks to God to have reached 9 weeks and ask you Saint Gerard to intervene with Our Lord and his Blessed Mother and ask them to bless our baby and keep us and our unborn child safe throughout my pregnancy. Thank you. All Glory to God. Amen.

    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 to be blessed with another child, a sibling for my daughter and to be blessed with a safe delivery. 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 without having experienced in some way the effects of your intercession. Amen.

    Dear St. Gerald, I am now again pregnant but somehow I'm afraid this time coz I'm already 38 yrs old and my body might not be that strong anymore. Add to that I have a problem with RH incompatibility with my 2nd daughter. I pray that this RH incompatibility will not recur again this time. My family and I are not that financially stable and I also pray that our financial woes will be solved once and for all as I think this is already affecting me and my unborn baby, even if I don't want it to affect me. In Jesus' Name, thank you very much. Amen.
