5 Scriptures to Pray for Discovering Your Purpose
1. Where there is no vision, the people run wild, but blessed is he who follows divine instruction. Proverbs 29:18
Father, we pray that you would remind us that that we are all a part of building and expanding your Kingdom. We ask that you give us a fresh vision for your purpose for our lives. We ask that you open our eyes, our ears, our hearts, and our minds to your vision so that we can live out our purpose. Remove anything from our lives that hinders us from discerning your vision. We pray that you would draw us closer to you as you bring us revelation to our purpose. Please reveal to us what we need to do today to not run wild, but rather be focused on your divine vision. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
2. For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
Thank you Lord that even if what we see in front of us doesn’t feel good or look good, your plans are good. That even if harm comes our way, you’ll use it for good. Thank you for the hope we can find in you. We trust that you have our future planned out from the very beginning. Allow us to rest in you and rest in your master plan. Give us the confidence that you have nothing but good planned for us. Remind us that even though we don’t know the full plan, that you know the plan. May we lean into you, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
3. There are many plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that will prevail. Proverbs 19:21
Father, we thank you that even though we have our own idea of how our life should look, often setting out according to our plans, that your ultimate purpose prevails. We ask that you prompt us when we set out to make plans that we make them according to your will, and not our own. We ask that you remind us to come alongside you as we surrender every detail to fulfill your greater purpose. Please align our hearts with yours, our ideas with yours, and our will with yours. For your ways are higher than ours and your plans are greater than ours, and nothing is impossible with you. Lead us every step of the way, in Jesus’s name. Amen
4. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. James 1:5
Father, in the name of Jesus, as we begin to take steps in the direction of our purpose, we ask that you give us wisdom. We ask in faith, that as your Word promises us, that you will give us wisdom in every small and large decision as we step into our purpose. We thank you that we don’t have to rely on our own understanding, as we know that your wisdom will guide us to our exact purpose. Thank you that we can come to the throne and ask anything. We ask for your guidance, and we thank you for the gift and power of the Holy Spirit, in Jesus’s name.
5. The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it. I Thessalonians 5:24
Father, we thank you for being a faithful God. Thank you that although we live in a world where our circumstances at times are shaky, that we serve an unshakeable God. Lord, we ask for this type of faith. Thank you for giving us examples in the Bible of those who found their purpose in you, and every time, without a doubt, you were faithful. Thank you that if you have called us to it, then you will equip us for it. We ask that you remind us of your faithfulness when doubt creeps in. We ask that you allow your promises to overwhelm us when our purpose seems to big. For you are bigger than anything in front of us. Thank you that we can trust in you and your faithfulness never fails us, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
