Prayer to Saint Gerard

Great Saint Gerard, patron and protector of expectant mothers, powerful intercessor before God and wonder worker of our day, I call upon you and seek your aid.

Help me always to do the will of God. Preserve me in the wonders of motherhood, and shield the child I now bear, that it may be brought safely to the light of the day and receive your most Holy Sacraments.

– Amen.

Saint Gerard Majella is a Roman Catholic Saint whose intercession is requested for children, childbirth, expectant mothers and motherhood. All pregnant women can seek the intercession of St. Gerard for a safe delivery.
