Resolutely, I study the problem,
Day after day,
I circumambulate the walled city,
impenetrable as Jericho.
I ponder its formidability,
consider my inadequacies.
Following the Spirit, Spirit-led,
I make my way around
Prayerfully, I practice
the most judicious path,
grow in strength and knowledge.
On the final day, I lay aside
my fears, gather confidence,
faith, and courage.
Seven times, I compass
the prize, discomfit the
enemy, assault the
fortress with a mighty shout.
Walls come tumbling down.
