Though you conceived me against your scheduled time my tiny parts felt so secure inside your love vessel I then invoked for your painstaking care grateful that you chose to keep me--- ---until my hospital birth exposure. Though you left me to be cared by your grand mom my babyhood was settled midst struggling milestones I then invoked for your constant visits yet you still decided to act out what seemed best--- --- that was not to see me anymore. Though you let me grope amidst identity crisis my genes could not hide your physical influence I then invoked for your possible appearance despite your subtle approval for my orphanage placement--- --- making me bereft of family-tree details. Though you remain a mystery I can’t fathom my personhood praises God for His love I’m experiencing I then invoke that He would grant you peace along forgiveness Christ assures to those who trust in Him --- --- such is my faith while admitting this… I long to meet you. I now invoke YOU, Sovereign Almighty for possible mother-son reunion: please regard my supplication* with Your favour… I invoke you, Mommy, in the name of the Lord: remember me, your son, yearning for your hugs --- --- ready to embrace you dearly.
*Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. October 26, 2021 3rd place, "Pick-A-Title, Vol 26 - Invocation" Poetry Writing Contest Sponsored by Edward Ibeh; judged on 11/2/2021.

This "invocation" is filled with pain yet overflows with the hope of reunion through mercy, Beata. It so reminds me of David's cry in the Psalms. So well done my friend. Congratulations on your win. Sending you many blessings.

Thanks so much, Edward... for the placement, and for your uplifting comment. This is the prayer of one of the children in our orphanage. We, by God's grace, are striving for the possible "reunion" of children with their families. God bless you...
