Most Blessed Trinity,
I, Your child,
thank You for all the gifts and privileges which You granted to St. Gerard,
especially for those virtues with which You adorned him on earth
and the glory which You now impart to him in heaven.
Accomplish Your work, Oh Lord,
so that Your kingdom may come about on earth.
Through his merits,
in union with those of Jesus and Mary,
grant me the grace for which I ask....
(Mention your request here...)
And you, my powerful intercessor, St. Gerard,
always so ready to help those who have recourse to you,
pray for me.
Come before the throne of Divine Mercy
and do not leave without being heard.
To you I confide this important and urgent affair.
Graciously take my cause in hand
and do not let me end this novena
without having experienced in some way the effects of your intercession.
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, too, 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.
