A Psalm for Lost Girls
Katie Bayerl

After the first round of prayers, my energy begins to lift. By the third round, my headache is gone and as we all murmur amen, I hear the voice for the first time in days: LOVE, it tells me. IN THE END IS LOVE.
I know somehow that this message isn’t for Mrs. Khoury or the others. This one’s for me. And I think I know what it means too: The voice is telling me not to be afraid, reminding me that even in the worst moments, when nothing makes sense and doubt and worry make everything bleak, there is still love in my life. Right here with this small group of believers. And inside with Callie and Ma.
I ask Mrs. Khoury & Co to give me their blessings before they go. Because today, the tables have turned. Today, their faith has healed me.
