a prayer

I love our church in Nashville. I regularly listen to their sermon podcasts, and one of the pastors (Elliott Cherry) prays this prayer before he preaches. Maybe it's a common prayer somewhere, but I don't know what it's called. Nonetheless, I love it, and I wanted to write it down for myself.

"Would you take your word and apply it to our heads that we would not grow shallow.
Would you take your word and apply it to our hearts that we would not grow cold.
Would you take your word and apply it to our feet that we would not just be hearers of your word but doers also.
Save us from ourselves, Jesus.
It's in your name and only because of your name that we can ask anything from our Father, and so we do so with great confidence. Amen."
