5 Prayers For Purpose In Life

Ecclesiastes 3:1 speaks of a purpose for everything under the sun. This means that God had a plan for everything he made. That of course includes you and me. When a father grooms their child to take over the family business they start at a very early age.

They teach them the ways and methods that they need to succeed in that business. They make sure they set them on a very specific route so that they will be ready when the time is finally right for them to take over. God wants to groom us to be in his kingdom.

He created us to serve that particular purpose and everything that we go through in life is to strengthen us for this cause. When God tells David that his son Solomon will build his Temple, David makes sure that everything needed for the construction is secured and his people were happy in their hearts to contribute to this project.

The Bible says that David blessed his people because they had found the joy in their hearts to serve a purpose for God. Prayers for purpose in life help us to realize what our contribution to God’s kingdom is and move us in the direction to achieve that purpose.

David could have sulked and decided to abandon God when he was told he was no longer fit for the purpose of building God’s temple but he did not do so. He found a way to still serve God.

Sometimes our fellow humans can make us feel like we are not fit for anything. That could not be farther from the truth. God had a plan for you even before you were born. He has already written the script for your life and you are merely an actor. Everything that happens to you is not by chance but by design. You have been deliberately placed where you are to do exactly what you are doing now.

Whatever you have in your hand right now is what God has purposed for you. He will use you to achieve his plan just like he used Moses, David, Jeremiah and so many other people. Never ever feel your life is not worth anything because it definitely is.
