    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 that at our ultrasound today the technician and doctor do not find the suspected echogenic spot on our daughter's bowels and that no other complications be identified.
    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 this novena without having experienced in some way the effects of your intercession.

    Dear Saint Gerard, Please bless my husband and I as we go today to see a specialist regarding my uterine complications. Please heal my womb and allow me to carry our children. The ability to give life is such a gift and we have so much love to give. Saint Gerard, We have a lot of challenges to overcome and we ask that you grant us a safe and healthy pregnancy and that we're able to give birth to a healthy baby. Please let today give us hope and move us closer to making our hopes, dreams and prayers, our reality. I ask this in the Lord Jesus name, Amen

    Dear St. Gerard, powerful intercessor before God I pray to you that my husband and I can get pregnant have a healthy baby. We've had two miscarriages and were told my multiple doctors there would never be another. We have been given a "third chance" and we are waiting the results of a pregnancy. We want a healthy baby to love and bring into this world to share in this wonderful life more than anything. I need you to walk with me, and comfort me to a beautiful place of peace and belief. We believe it is possible and we want this third chance to be our baby the gift of life! Please watch over us and protect us. Thank you, Amen

    Saint Gerard, I entrusted to you my pregnancy. I sought strength to Jesus with your intercession since I feel hopeless even I was sheltered by my wonderful family because I have to go through the process alone. I believe that my son was a fruit of love but unexpectedly my child's father has chosen to turn his back on us. Hence, since then I made Jesus my son's Father. With my veneration to you and deep faith on Jesus Christ I was able to surpass depression and gain strength and is now enjoying each day of my life with my wonderful son. I learned that a friend of mine is to share the same fate as mine. Please help her as you have helped me. Make her feel that she's not alone. That Jesus would be there for her and her child. Please pray for her that she'll have a safe pregnancy and that her child will be healthy in God's grace. Thank you Saint Gerard. Please pray for us.

    O glorious Saint Gerard, powerful intercessor before God, and wonder worker of our day, I call upon you and seek your help. You who always fulfilled God's will on earth, help me to do God's holy will. Intercede with the Giver of life, from whom all parenthood proceeds, that I may conceive and raise children who will please God in this life, and be heirs to the kingdom of heaven. My husband and I turn to you in our time of need and know that your works are amazing and often answered. Please hear our cries and bless us. Amen.
