 3 Ways to Pray the Chaplet to St. Gerard

St. Gerard is the patron saint of mothers, expectant mothers, and unborn children. He is a powerful saint to ask for intercession when you are trying to conceive a baby. Using a nine bead chaplet, here are three different prayers to ask for this St. Gerard's intercession.

Prayer for One Desiring Parenthood:

Introductory prayer:
O good St. Gerard, powerful intercessor before the throne of God, wonder-worker of our day, I call upon you and seek your help. While on earth, you always fulfilled God's designs; help me to always do God's holy will. Beseech the Master of life, from whom all parenthood proceeds, to bless me with offspring, that I may raise up children to God in this life and heirs to the kingdom of God's glory in the life to come. Amen.

Then, on each set of three beads, pray one Our Father, one Hail Mary, and one Glory Be.

Prayer for the Expectant Mother:

Introductory prayer:
O almighty and everlasting God, through the Holy Spirit, you prepared the body and soul of the glorious virgin Mary to be a worthy dwelling place of your divine Son. through the same Holy Spirit, you sanctified St. John the Baptist, while still in his mother's womb. Hear the prayers of your humble servant who implores you, through the intercession of St. Gerard, to protect me amid the dangers of childbearing and to watch over the child with which you blessed me. May this child be cleansed by the saving water of baptism and, after a Christian life on earth, may we, both mother and child, attain everlasting bliss in heaven. Amen.

Then, on each set of three beads, pray one Our Father, one Hail Mary, and one Glory Be.

Prayer for a Special Intention:

Introductory Prayer:
St. Gerard, during your life you extended your help to the unfortunate and poor around you. Help me in my present need (mention your intention here). Give me the insight to recognise the presence of Jesus in the sufferings and troubles of others. Let not my urgent need for help cause me to think only of myself. Following your example, uniting my prayers and sufferings with Jesus on the cross, may I be transformed into a person of love and compassion. St. Gerard, pray for me. Amen.

Then, on each set of three beads, pray one Our Father, one Hail Mary, and one Glory Be.

 

Each of these prayers can be prayed with a nine bead St. Gerard chaplet. They are available to purchase in the Marian Graces store, either in silver or bronze. The above prayer instructions are included with each chaplet.
