Prayer to St. Gerard

O good St. Gerard,
powerful intercessor before God
and Wonder-worker of our day,
I call on you and seek your help.
You who on earth did always fulfill God's design,
help me to do the Holy Will of God.
Beseech the Master of Life,
from whom all paternity proceeded,
to make 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.

When you stand before God and surrender your will to Him, and place all of your heart, soul, and faith in what God has planned for you, and not to think of your wants and desires, only then will God give you the desires of your heart.

Thanks for posting this prayer. I prayed it while I was pregnant with Madeleine.
