The walls of Jericho seemed impossibly high. They towered over little
Amos as he ran along to keep up with his family. They had been walking
round the city every day for six days andtoday they had walked around
Jericho six times. And now he was tired as they went round the seventh

Remember those walls of Jericho and that God loves and cares for His children
with an everlasting love. Speak to God in prayer and tell Him your
needs. And then remember our verse, "All things are possible to him
who believes. Put all your trust in God, He cares.
