Shoe Prayer

Almightt father and everliving God,
We ask you to bring your spirit upon these shoes
And make then Holy.
May we sell lots of shoes and
May those who wear them walk in the
Light of Your presence.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord
Amen

  1. Mike that is an awesome story and yes, God does have a sense of humor…that’s how we have ours. Well, I will be in prayer for your success and great prosperity.

  2. I watched Mike Murdock last night on inspiration.org. I was intrigued by the 7 laws of uncommon success. So much so that I had to jot them down this a.m. I could only remember 4 of them. So, in trying to find them I came across this website.

    As I was reviewing the laws, I notice a link titled shoe prayer. I click on this link to find the prayer above. That is amazing to me, because I am in the act of opening a shoe store. Opening is slated for March. I’ve run across financial obstacles in trying to do so and Mike’s presentation last night inspired me to take some steps that I feel will get me even closer to my dream. I think it is much more than a coincedence!

    To find the poem has provided me the confidence that God already has my provision for my store. I just thought that was the greatest oddity to find that specific prayer during this specific time. How awesome God really is!!!! Thanks for sharing. God bless.

    • Hi Cheryl,

      Good luck and all my best with the business. “Partnering” with God will bring good things. We do have to trust and surrender to Him. It doesn’t mean we don’t do what we have to do, work hard, be disciplined, use right and correct and moral action, but having Christ in the picture certainly helps.

      The other night, in frustration, I challenged Christ rather harshly. It had been a measly slow day and it looked like we wouldn’t even come close to bringing in the week. After my harsh conversation with Him, I felt a wave of his hand over the store and in no time(there was only two or three hours left) people started coming in from all over and buying shoes. I was humbled and ashamed that I even bothered Christ with this mundane request. But Christ does want to be personally involved in every aspect of our lives. We just have to invite him in.

      We made the week with about $100 to spare. In the last ten minutes, as if to get me back, a woman came in and started looking at all the most expensive shoes. I brought out more than twenty pairs of shoes for her to try on and she had me running back and forth for more. In the end, she bought nothing. I smiled and said, ok, you got me Lord. Good one…
