Play 1. I Need Thee Every Hour Verse 2

I need Thee, every hour

Stay Thou nearby;

Temptations lose their power

When Thou art nigh.

Here is the whole song for you to listen to:

Play 2. I Need Thee Every Hour - Matt and Louise

READ


“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.” (James 4:7-8)

 

DO


Talk through the meaning of this verse of the song. (What DOES “Thou art nigh” mean anyway?!) Draw a picture of what the words of the song tell you about Jesus.

What are some of those temptations you face? How does inviting Jesus near help you to NOT do those things?

 

PRAY


Jesus, be near me as I am tempted to . . .
