Saint Gerard (Majella) Chaplet Prayers

************

There are two sets of prayer you may use for this chaplet.

(For An Expectant Mother and/or Motherhood or other special favor)

For An Expectant Mother

On the Medal Pray

Great Saint Gerard, beloved servant of Jesus Christ, you are a perfect imitator of our meek and humble Savior, and a devoted child of the Mother of God.  Enkindle in my heart one spark of that heavenly fire of charity that glowed in yours and made you a beacon of love.

Glorious Saint Gerard, like your Divine Master you bore without murmur or complaint the calumnies of wicked men when falsely accused of crime, and you have been raised up by God as the patron and protector of expectant mothers.  Preserve me from dangers, and shield the child I now carry.  Pray that my baby may be brought safely to the light of day and receive the sacrament of baptism.

On each of the First Set Three Beads Pray the Our Father

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.

On each of the Second Set Three Beads Pray the Hail Mary

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.

On each of Third Set of Three Beads Pray the Glory Be

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.

Graciously take my cause in hand and do not let me end this prayer without having experienced in some way the effects of your intercession.  Amen.
