THE ST GERARD FERTILITY PRAYER
St Gerard is known as the Patron Saint of Fertility. Catholics and Christians have prayed to St. Gerard for help with infertility and for a safe conception, pregnancy, and delivery.
ST GERARD FERTILITY PRAYER:
O glorious St. 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 those desiring to conceive to do God’s holy will. Intercede with the Giver of Life from whom all parenthood proceeds, that they may conceive and raise children who will please God in this life and be heirs to the Kingdom of Heaven. Amen.
CONCEPTION PRAYER: GOD’S GIVING POWERS
Dear Lord, I offer this prayer for pregnancy.
You know how we struggle as each month passes without getting pregnant. Hopes and dreams deterred, staining our future.
Be good to us Lord. Extend your life giving powers and bless us with child. Amen
PRAYER FOR MOTHERHOOD
Lord, I am grateful for the blessings you have given me.
You know the sadness, struggle, and pain I have endured. Continue to guide me on the days that I feel inadequate, inferior, unworthy of motherhood.
Help me fight off feelings of jealousy towards those who seem to conceive so easily, of anger of what seems unfair, of sorry for what I have lost.
Help me feel only joy for those who have been blessed with motherhood, especially those whom I love and who love me.
Help me continue to hope, even when there seems to be none.
I cannot know your Will, but the desire to parent would not be so strong within me if it were not part of Your plan for me.
I seek the fulfillment of Your plans for me as a parent, whether by I child I bear myself, one You have sent to me; or a child I find, one to whom I have been sent.
Heal the empty place in my heart, fill my empty hands, already open and ready to hold and love a child.
In Christ’s name I pray, Amen.
The Fertility Blessing
You know my deep desire for a child. A little one to love and to hold, to care for, to cherish.
Grant that my body may conceive, and give birth a beautiful and healthy baby in Your holy image.
Guide me in all of my choices so that this conception, my pregnancy, and my baby’s birth are in line with Your will.
Heavenly Father and Holy Mother, hear this prayer in my heart, mind, and spirit.
