    Happy feast day St. Gerard Majella, patron saint of expectant mothers, and of all women who desire to become pregnant and bring to birth a healthy child of God. My prayer to you is the same as what I've made to you unceasingly. Please continue to remember Christian's need for a permanent cure from seizures, slow speech, unsociable behavior, temper tantrums, ear infections, constipation etc. Dear saint help heal the suffering child and bring joy to his parents. Besides, I also implore you to intercede to God for my daughter to conceive a healthy baby. Amen.

    dear st. gerard,
    through your intercession i pray together with my husband for a healthy bundle of joy, to which we will be able to manifest our capability to extend love beyond our husband and wife relations, and further exercise our sense of responsibility to look after, support and nourish the sacred life that we have long been waiting for, grant that we will be able conceive in the coming days and if it is not too much to ask we pray for a healthy conception, we ask this in the most holy name of Jesus.

St Gerard we are now 9 weeks pregnant and we pray for all our baby's organs to develop normally and may he grow up to be a happy and healthy child. Please intercede for me St Gerard the patron of all expectant mothers. We love this child with all our hearts and we want so much for him to be in our lives. I lift up to you this prayer together with Mama Mary, Amen.

    dear st. gerard majella, this is the 2nd day(sept.11,2012) after i was injected with a methotrexate to stop my pregnancy since it is an ectopic one. i feel so sorry for our baby in my womb because he is so alive but had to put a stop to his growth. i pray for forgiveness that i can't do anything to save our baby. I'm still have that hope in me that our baby in my womb right now would miraculously go in my uterus, where he should be, instead of staying in my fallopian tube. and if it happens that i can still carry him full term and give birth to him alive, i pray that the methotrexate that was injected to me will miraculously not cause him harm in any way, for him to still be normal and healthy in all aspects of his being. my husband, our daughter and i have been waiting for this baby, we love him and we are praying so hard that this would be it, that my 1st ectopic last feb 2012 won't happen again.this we pray in JESUS' name. amen.
