Prayer to Conceive

Almighty Creator, hear this fertility prayer and the wishes of my heart.
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.

Father You granted the prayers of Elizabeth, of Sarah, and of the wife of Manoah for children, and now, for love of Your divine Son, please grant the prayers of this young woman.
How different the history of Your people would have been without Sarah and Elizabeth’s sons! And now we ask for a special child for this mother.
Thank You Father

Happy to pray!

Heavenly Mother, please pray that a lucky child be born to these people! In our Lord’s Name, amen.

Prayer to St. Gerard for Fertility:

O good Saint Gerard, powerful intercessor before God and Wonderworker of our day, I call upon thee and seek thy aid. Thou who on earth didst always fulfill God’s designs, 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. Amen.

P.S. I was having trouble conceiving as well. I made a pilgrimage to St. Jude’s shrine in Chicago, where they have a holy relic of him. That very night I conceived with my third child, whose name is, of course- Jude! If prayers to St. Gerard do not help you, try St. Jude. Good luck and God bless!

Memorare (Prayer to Our Lady)
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen

Praying for the Lord’s holy will to be done in your life with no obstacles to His will. May you be abandoned to the Lord’s merciful love full of confidence in His merciful love. Amen.

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us form the fires of hell, lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of your mercy. Amen.
