Priming the Pump in Prayer

October 14, 2016

 

Learning to pray takes practice. Reformer Martin Luther recommended “priming the pump” by praying Scripture and hymns. When you sit down with God, try praying the words to this hymn. Start out by saying them, rather than singing them, and pray them to the Lord:

 

I need Thee every hour, most gracious Lord;

No tender voice like Thine can peace afford.

 

Refrain:

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 nearby;

Temptations lose their pow’r 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.
