May my steps be worship, may my thoughts be praise, may my words bring honor to your name.
I’m an old softy for prayer in song. In today’s world, it is all too rare for good melody and good words to end up in the same song.
The song “Just For Today” by Marc Shelske hits both goals.
Father God just for today, help me walk the narrow way.
Help me stand when I might fall. Lend me the strength to hear your call.
May my steps be worship, may my thoughts be praise, may my words bring honor to Your name. May my steps be worship, may my thoughts be praise, may my words bring honor to Your name.
Here I am just for today. Live in me, have Your way. For my desire when this race is run, is only to hear You say, “Well done!”

Shame on me if I affirm audibly the words of the song—and then walk out of the assembly to live as if unaware of the song’s message.
How can I declare to God that my steps throughout the day will be steps of worship, and my thoughts during the day will focus on praise, with each word I speak bringing honor to His name—then promote division in the body of Christ?
This seems to me to be a vital question.
Stay tuned. Gary J. Sorrells on Cross Church.
