    St. Gerard help me that i would get pregnant and that my husband and I would be blessed with a helathy and normal baby girl before the year 2011 ends. Help me be relaxed not be stressed and pressured. Strengthen my faith in you St. Gerard. Thank you.

    St. Gerard I have been praying to you for several months to interceed for me and ask that I am blessed with a healthy pregnancy. I miscarried last year during my first pregnancy after 7 years of trying for a child. I am now pregnant again and am fearful of losing this blessing. Please pray for me that this child will continue to grow strong in my womb so that I will be able to give birth to a healthy baby and raise it up in Jesus name. Bless me with a healthy pregnancy and bless the child whom I now carry that it may see the light of day and life giving waters of baptism. In Jesus name, Amen.

    Thank you for praying with us through the difficult first trimester, for stopping the bleeding and virtually all negative pregnancy symptoms. Thank you for holding this precious life safe in prayer with Jesus our Lord. Still another 23 weeks to go, but all is looking so well at this time. Thank you God for your mercy and compassion. Mary pray for me. St Gerard continue to lift us up in prayer. Bless our marriage at this time and keep us strong in our love for each other, in Christ's love for us. Be with all the mothers and babies who have asked for intercession on this page. With confidence in your great favour with Our Lord, as witnessed personally, Amen

    Wonderful St Gerard, hear my prayers to fall pregnant before the years end. O good St. Gerard, powerful intercessor before God and Wonder-worker of our day, I call upon thee and seek thy aid. Thou who on earth didst always fulfill God's design help me to do the Holy Will of God. Beseech the Master of Life, from Whom all paternity proceedeth to render me fruitful in offspring, that I may raise up children to God in this life and heirs to the Kingdom of His glory in the world to come. Amen.
    Dear Mother Mary, speak to Jesus for me.

    O Great Saint Gerard, beloved servant of Jesus Christ, perfect imitator of your meek and humble Savior, and devoted Child of the Mother of God: enkindle within my heart one spark of that heavenly fire of charity which glowed in your heart and made you an angel of love. O glorious Saint Gerard, because when falsely accused of crime, you did bear, like your Divine master, without murmur or complaint, the calumnies of wicked men, you have been raised up by God as the Patron and Protector of expectant mothers. Preserve me from danger and pray for me to conceive a child, that it may see the light of day and receive the lustral waters of baptism through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

    St. Gerard, on this your feast, October 16th, 2011, I give you thanks for my 10 year old granddaughter whose birthday is today. You were our great intercessor when her mother was having a very difficult pregnancy and had already lost one baby. A friend who is a Redemptorist brother, like you were, was praying to you and so were some other family friends. This beautiful, healthy little girl was born on YOUR FEAST DAY! Thank you. I continue to spread this wonderful story of a prayer answered.

    Dear St. Gerard,
    Please grant me your gift of humility. I was fired from a job that I was certain was a gift from God. It was. I was happy and able to use my interior design talents to help the veterans of our country. These last few days I have been working on papers to save my reputation and blow the whistle on those who fired me. I do want the abuses in our government to stop, but admit that I am trying to protect myself as well. Please pray for me to not address this issue in this manner, but accept that God has another way for me to do His work. Please make me not ashamed, but grateful for the nearly one year of work that i enjoyed at the VA. Please forgive those who did this to me. Please help me to forgive them as well. Please help me to find another way to be of service with whatever God has in mind for me. Please keep me from lashing out at those who condemn me.

    Please also be close to the child that I lost to miscarriage in 1973. Tell him/her that I still love that precious child that I never met or even saw. Thank you, St. Gerard and please help all who have asked for your intervention for thier children and their pregnancies. Please tell God that I love Him and ask His forgiveness.

    44 years ago, the doctors told my mother not to carry me for 9 months because she would not survive. I assume the option was to abort. She went ahead and when she began to experience substantial medical complications, she prayed to St. Gerard. Here I am today. I often thank and pray to St. Gerard.
    I love you dearly St. Gerard. You have helped so many, how can I help?

    It is a shame that today is St. Margaret Mary Alocoque feast day and she was not mentioned in your Saints of the Day. It is she who the Sacred Heart of Jesus gave the 12 promises to, and it was she who began the First Friday Novena to the Sacred Heart back in the 1600's.
