Prayers to know God's purpose over your life

Prayers to know God's purpose over your life


 by Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog. It's good to have you here and I love the fact that you keep coming back every week. May God bless you and enlarge your coast. So today, I will be sharing some prayer points about coming into purpose with you. If you've followed me for a while now, you'd know that I'm passionate for every child of God to come into God's purpose for their life. With the consistent hustle and bustle of this world, finding purpose may be the last thing on our mind. I have also conversed with people that have become so uninterested in finding purpose because of the way it has been presented to them in the time past. I am a big advocate of seeking God and being submitted to Him, He will definitely direct your path into purpose.

Here are 6 prayer points to help you know God's will for your life

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NIV) give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

First things first, I want you to thank God for everything even though you're not where you want to be or you thought you would be. Thank Him because it is God's will for you as a Christian. Don't look for a reason to thank Him, let thanksgiving flow effortlessly from your heart.

Ephesians 2:10(NIV)  For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Give thanks to God for creating you with a specific purpose to achieve here. Thank Him because He didn't create you without a purpose, that He intentionally created you the way you are to achieve His own purpose on earth. Thank Him because you're not here randomly, He created you for His reason. Give Him thanks. Your height, weight, race, colour, accent...everything about you is specific to His purpose over your life. Thank Him for you are His handiwork for His purpose.

Romans 11.29(NIV) for God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable.

  1. Pray that God reveals to you all your hidden gifts and talents that will facilitate your purpose 
  2. Pray that every gift that He has given to you that you have taken for granted will be stirred up in you this minute. Just like particles settle in the bottom of a cup of liquid requires a stir to be activated, ask that God should activate all your dormant gifts and show you a way to utilize them properly.

Romans 8:28 (NIV) And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.

Father, if there are any situations in my life obstructing me from walking in the line of your will for my life, open my eyes to see how it is all tying to your calling over my life. 

If there are any issues that are distracting you from walking in purpose maybe lack of money, illness or anything else, tell God to show you how He is using it to draw you closer to His will. Ask Him to show you how He loves to use evil and turn it for good. Ask Him to show you how this phase in your life is for His glory. 

Proverbs 19:21(NIV) Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails

If there is any purpose that I am pursuing that isn't yours, reveal it to me so I can be aligned with your calling over my life. Don't let me be carried away by the activities that you haven't called me to do. God, please re-align me with your calling over my life.

I really hope you prayed these prayers with fervency. Please bookmark it and revisit it frequently. Share it with your friends, family members and loved ones. Fulfilling purpose is our most important assignment here as children of God. We're Christ ambassadors and we're equipped to represent our father, please be purpose conscious. Don't harbour any fear in your heart about not fulfilling purpose, God is gracious to you! No matter your age, you can still fulfil purpose! All things are made available to you! God bless you and please, flourish!

With love,

Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun

  2. I have been in a season of finding purpose, the most difficult season in my life. Almost depressive feeling empty, purposeless and unfulfilled, I'll definitely ass these prayers to the few things I'm already doing.
    Truly believing I'll come back with a clearer perspective of the direction God wants me to take

Story Time: How I got my battle scars (Part 1)

Story Time: How I got my battle scars Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog. I know many of you that have seen me in real life or have seen my pictures have questions about my scars. I'd have questions too if I was in your shoes. To note, putting myself out there like this is new to me but I believe my story will bless and inspire someone. It is a story of victory, deliverance, overcoming tragedy and experiencing God’s intentional love.  Romans 8:28 (TPT) So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God's perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfil his designed purpose. On the 24th of March, 2012 my life changed forever. As the secretary of the History and International Studies student association at Babcock University (2012), I was part of the planning process for the annual departmental field trip. I woke up bright and early ready to face a wonderfu

How I went from being ashamed to being confident with my scars! (Part 3)

How I went from being ashamed to being confident with my scars! Oh wow, the feedback has been mind-blowing. A lot of people reached out to me and said they were moved to tears as they read my story, others said it helped them to stop complaining and become more grateful. Thank you so much for your kind words and encouragement, God bless you richly. This is the finale of how I got my battle scars stories, please catch up with Part 1 and Part 2 if you have not done so already. Here it goes. After a month and half of having my flesh cleaned every two days, the surgeons finally said I was ready for skin reconstructive surgery. They explained that I will be undergoing skin graft surgery. Basically, they were going to copy skin from my thigh and paste and all my burned areas. I had two options, mesh graft or sheet graft. Because the burns on my legs were extensive, they used mesh to reduce the chances of infections. The burn on my stomach and arm were covered with sheet

How I got my battle scars (Part 2)

How I got my battle scars (Part 2) I want to start by saying a big thank you to everyone that reached out to me after my last post on how I got my battle scars , please read my last post before reading this one . The overwhelming love and encouragement I received from everyone blew my mind. Thank you so much for it all, thank you! Like I promised, here is the part 2 of this story. Isaiah 41:10 "Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand." March 22nd, 2012. After receiving emergency treatment, I was put in a corner to be picked up by my family. My friends had reached out to my older sisters (they both lived in the UK at the time) about the accident. They were scared and did not know how to inform my parents, at last, they passed the information to my dad. My dad was out of town, so he reached out to his friend who lived around
