Prayer for Motherhood

O good St. Gerard, powerful intercessor before God and 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.  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.
