I'm not understanding the problem. You want to get the time/date on the server then use it in your query? Just use the variable "SYSDATE" in your query, it is the current time on the server. example:
Code:
SELECT STUFF FROM MYTABLE WHERE TABLE_DATE > SYSDATE -1;

-- finds all of the rows in mytable where the table_date field has a value that is less than one day.
