NOVENA FOR MOTHERHOOD
FOR AWAITING MOTHERS AND FATHERS
FOR CHILDREN BEFORE BIRTH



Novena to St. Gerard Majella for Motherhood

 Good St. Gerard, powerful intercessor before the throne of God,
Wonder-Worker of our day, I call upon thee and seek thy aid.
Thou who on earth didst always fulfill God's design help  me to do the
Holy Will of God. Thou knowest that our marriage has not as yet been
blessed with a child and how much my husband and I desire this gift.
Please present our fervent pleas to the Creator of life from Whom all
parenthood proceeds and beseech Him to bless us with the child we so
fervently pray for. Beseech the Master of life, from Whom all paternity
proceedeth 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.

Dear Mother Mary, speak to Jesus for me. 

Say for nine times in a row for nine consecutive days. 




For Awaiting Mothers and Fathers 

O everlasting and almighty God, Who, through the operation of the
Holy Spirit, prepared the body and soul of the glorious Virgin Mary,
Mother of God, to be a worthy dwelling for Thy Son, and Who through
the same Holy Spirit, sanctified Saint John the Baptist before his birth;
deign to hear the prayer of Thy humble servants. We implore Thee,
through the intercession of St. Gerard, to protect me (her), in maternity
and to safeguard against the evil spirit the child which Thou hast given us
(them), that by Thy saving Hand, he or she may receive holy Baptism.
Grant also that, having lived as Christians on earth, we (they) may attain
to everlasting bliss in Heaven. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen. 




For Children Before Birth

MARY, Immaculate Mother, I beseech thee by the joy that thou didst
experience in the birth of Jesus, Thy Divine Son, to take under Thy
motherly protection all the little ones that are to be born this day
throughout the world. 

Obtain for them the grace of holy Baptism. Watch over them always.
Pray that from the day when they receive for the first time the God
of love, their hearts, pure and innocent, may ever respond to the
beatings of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, and attach themselves
to Him forever. Amen.
