I need Thee every hour

I need Thee every hour,
  Most gracious Lord;
No tender voice like Thine
  Can peace afford.
  I need Thee, oh, I need Thee;
  Every hour I need Thee;
Oh, bless me now, my Savior!
    I come to Thee.
I need Thee every hour,
  Stay Thou near by;
Temptations lose their power
  When Thou art nigh.
I need Thee every hour,
  In joy or pain;
Come quickly and abide,
  Or life is vain.
I need Thee every hour,
  Teach me Thy will;
And Thy rich promises
  In me fulfill.
I need Thee every hour,
  Most Holy One;
Oh, make me Thine indeed,
  Thou blessed Son.

Oh God my Father I need You this hour. My life is not explainable to me any more, am seriously under frustration, debts here and there of which my income cannot meet. Come to my rescue. God, I need You to be up and doing for my responsibility. I need You my Father to meet my need. Make a way for me. Thank You Lord.

I need Thee every hour most gracious Lord and while I am struggling to find work as a temporary resident and have not received any income and the financial burden is hard on my family. My wife is now the sole breadwinner. Her faith in our Lord is strong as she carries our family. I work hard to find employment and pray continually while calling on the name of Jesus Christ to help me during this stressful time. This beautiful hymn, sung so well has moved me to tears. Let us all pray for each other around the world, from many different cultures and creeds, but all one family of Christ, as we need our Lord every hour.

I do need my Lord and Savior and His guidance and surpassing peace! I love Him and trust Him, though just yesterday have felt anxiety, responsibility, fear and heavy burdens overwhelm me. This is not normal for me. I NEED You, Lord Jesus, to be my constant companion. I need You to wash away my fears. I desperately need Your joy and peace and incredible love to envelop me from within and without. Thank You that You always hear my prayers and that You never sleep and that there is nowhere I can go that You are not there! Since You are for me, none can be against me. Please, please raise me above all that I feel! I love You so much!

I need the tender mercies of the Lord, to soften my heart once again, to feel the depths of the riches of Christ my Saviour.

Now and always, on the way to my Eternal home..

Praise you Jesus

All the earth shall kneel and confess You as Lord and saviour.

This song always brings me into the presence of God. And as I draw near to Him, I can feel His presence surrounding me.

As the year is just beginning, we need to invite the presence of the Holy God. This hymn is perfect. As we sing this hymn prayerfully, we are filled with His presence. Glory to God.

Gracious God, I submit myself to You today, I summit my fear to You, fear of uncertainties, failures, disappointments. I pray for Your peace, open doors, and mostly the fulfilment of Your promises. Give us Your grace to know You always, and to depend on You forever.

Surely every hour we need Him. From hour to hour we do not know what situations will confront us. We may say hallelujah or amen in the meeting, but when we get home, our joy may vanish, and instead of hallelujah and amen there will be silence and a long face. A problem has arisen. Or we may get chilled and catch cold. Whatever the problem, Christ is there taking care of our case. He bears us when we have a long face or are ill. His interceding never ceases. His ability to take care of us is unlimited because He is the almighty God. His priesthood is an interceding ministry in the heavens, in the Holy of Holies, before God for us.
