Prayer for Motherhood to Saint Gerard, Patron Saint of Expectant Mothers
O good Saint Gerard, powerful intercessor before God and wonder worker of our day, confidently I call upon you and seek your aid. On Earth you always fulfilled God’s designs. Help me now to do the holy will of God. Implore the Master of Life, from whom all paternity proceeds, to render 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.
Prayer to God for a Fertility Blessing
Heavenly Father, 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 to a beautiful, healthy baby in Your holy image. Guide me in all 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 of my heart, mind and spirit. Amen.
Prayer to Mother Mary to Conceive
Mother of Christ, you know, as no other mother can, the high dignity of motherhood. You know how immensely great the privilege is to call into this world a tiny soul destined to praise God forever in heaven. This is the privilege I now seek, Mary! Confidently I beg you to assist me, for I know that motherhood is so precious in your sight. And confidently too, I hope for this blessing through your divine Son, since Jesus loved all little children, and has said that we should allow them to come to Him. It is for this blessing that I beg you, to join with my petitions your own holy intercession, that I might be privileged to bring to Jesus a little one for me to dearly love, that He may bless it, that He may bless me also in my motherhood, and that He may then make us both grow in the wonders of His Divine Life. Mother of Mothers, Pray for me! Amen.
- What are the prayers that you and your family recite for special intentions?
Share your story, your story matters.
I have had several women in the past few weeks contact me about spiritual means to effect fertility and conception. In my brief online researching whenever the topic comes up, there is woefully little from a magical perspective. So i offer you two prayers:
One, a traditional Catholic prayer, calling on the Blessed Mother as Our Lady of La Leche. Her US shrine is in St. Augustine, FL. Her intercession helps infertile couples conceive and expectant mothers to carry difficult pregnancies to full term.
Lovely Lady of La Leche, most loving mother of the Child Jesus, and my mother, listen to my humble prayer.
Your motherly heart knows my every wish, my every need.
To you only, His spotless Virgin Mother, has your Divine Son given to understand the sentiments which fill my soul. Yours was the sacred privilege of being the Mother of the Savior.
Intercede with him now, my loving Mother, that, in accordance with His will, I may become the mother of other children of our heavenly Father.
This I ask, O Lady of La Leche, in the Name of your Divine Son, My Lord and Redeemer. Amen.
Two, a prayer to the Archangel Gabriel,
Since S/He announced the births of both Jesus and John the Bastist, Archangel Gabriel’s aid is called upon when a woman is trying to get pregnant. Gabriel is also aligned with Angelica Root, a powerful spiritual helper of women as well as a medicinal tonic.
Glorious Messenger of the Court of Heaven
and most excellent Saint and Archangel,
first minister of God,
interpreter for Daniel the Prophet,
instructor of Zachary the Priest,
annunciator to our Holy Mother Mary,
bringer of the word of truth:
Please favor my devotions and
help me to love and serve you,
and, through you,
to love and serve the Lord. O Gabriel Archangel,
grant me what I most earnestly desire
and humbly ask for with this prayer,
for the honor, glory, and fulfillment
of my soul.
