Last week, my long time mentor friend and colleague Dave Kurlan wrote a blog series abut his sales mentor, the most successful sales lessons and his biggest secret to successful sales.
Based on his willingness to share this secret and my shared philosophy and beliefs, I thought I’d share this Salesperson’s Prayer I wrote many years ago. This is a prayer I read and say aloud daily. I hope it is helpful to all in the sales profession. Enjoy…
A Salesperson’s Prayer
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for this day! Thank you for the sacrifices you’ve made to allow me to be here to serve you. Thank You for Your love, Your kindness and for all the many blessing You have sent my way. Thank You for Your guidance and for Your continued support in my life.
I pray today Lord that you will place me in front of those you wish for me to help. I am ready and able to do Your will. I ask that you use me as a tool to Your benefit. I pray that You will guide me and give the words to say and the patience to listen. I pray that you will give me strength in overcoming adversity, facing and persuading naysayers, and use me as a tool to reach the people you want me to help. I know that all things are possible through you and I believe you have put me in sales for a reason. Help me to see that reason and help me to help others help themselves.
In Jesus Christ name I pray, AMEN.
