Jeremiah 1:4-5 NKJV

“Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”


The call of Jeremiah began through a revelation that God knew him and called him to become a prophet to the nations. These scriptures indicate that God predestined our future before we were conceived. We also note the importance of sanctification or consecration for one to accomplish their purpose. Saul was called even as he was persecuting Christians and his purpose revealed. At this Jesus mentioned His intentions to make him a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which are yet to be revealed. Jesus also revealed his purpose to open the eyes of the people and turn them from darkness to light, from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Him (Acts 26:16-18). Let us ask the Lord to sanctify us and reveal His purposes for us so that we may be effective for His kingdom.


Dear Lord Jesus we thank You and adore You. We praise You God in Your sanctuary and in Your mighty firmament. We praise You for Your mighty acts. We praise You according to Your excellent greatness and exult Your mighty name. We humbly ask You to forgive us all our sins and iniquities and cleanse us with Your precious blood. May You sanctify us entirely soul, body and spirit dear Lord Jesus. May You guide us in the purposes for which You formed us. May You grant us the wisdom to do all our work well and exercise our gifts and talents with excellence. May You protect our children who have closed school and all our youth. We thank You and praise Your name Jesus. Amen

Romans 8:28 NKJV

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”


God has good plans for us, plans to prosper us and not to harm us, plans to give us hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11). Despite what we might be going through in our lives and nation, God has a good purpose for us. God has the ability to change every adverse situation for our good in whatever means possible. Even as we are faced with high cost of living, taxation and other financial and economic handles in our nation, God is working in His own unique ways. We are called to trust Him and in Him and we will never be disappointed. Let us continue to pray for our nation that we may have peace and prosperity in the current time and generations to come.


We praise You our Lord and God with all our hearts and sing praises to Your name. We bow down to You and praise Your name for Your unfailing love and Your faithfulness. Your purpose will stand upon our nation as You do what You please Lord. May all kings of the earth praise You Lord, when they hear what You have decreed. May all leaders praise You and take delight in Your truth. May all citizens praise You when we hear of Your good plans for our lives. May we sing of Your ways Lord, for Your glory Lord is great. You are exalted and You look kindly towards the lowly, and just to those who are oppressed. Even though we walk in the midst of trouble, You preserve our lives. You stretch out Your hand against the anger of our foes and with Your right hand You save us. May You vindicate us with Your love dear Lord Jesus that endures forever. May You save us and our nation dear Lord Jesus. May peace, love, unity and prosperity be found within our boarders. May only You be seen and glorified in everything that is happening in our nation for the glory and honor of Your name. Amen

Luke 7:31-32 NKJV

“And the Lord said, “To what then shall I liken the men of this generation, and what are they like? They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling to one another, saying: ‘We played the flute for you, And you did not dance; We mourned to you, And you did not weep.’”


-God’s calling for our lives and nation is a critical element of our daily lives. The Pharisees and law experts rejected God’s purposes for them and were not baptized so that the Holy Spirit would come upon them. They did not allow the Holy Ghost to fall upon them even as He came upon Jesus like a dove during His baptism to fulfill all righteousness and they failed to be receive sonship (Matthew 3:15-17). Jesus then compared them to the people of the generation of the time who were alert in the spirit. This is a prophecy with a lot of relevance today. The young generation is sitting out in the market place calling out at each other. Playing the pipe to the government and they do not want to dance. Singing to them a dirge and they do not cry. They have hardened their hearts to the voice of God and that of the young people thus not allowing the Holy Spirit fill them and work through them and in them for a better nation.


Abba Father we thank You for Your goodness and mercies which are new each morning. We repent all our sins and iniquities may You forgive us and deliver us from all disaster. We repent on behalf of our leaders and our nation, may You forgive us and wash us with Your precious blood. We are sorry for we have committed the seven sins that You hate as a nation please forgive us. We have entertained a proud look and a lying tongue. We have shed innocent blood and our hearts have devised wicked plans. Our feet have swiftly ran to perform evil and we have sown discord among brethren. We have bore false witness and have spoken lies, may You have mercies on us and remember our sins no more dear Lord Jesus Christ. If You find only a few righteous people in our nation please save us dear Lord Jesus. May You save our children from premature death. May You save our nation from slavery. May You save our economy and grant us peace and prosperity. May Your righteousness be found in our nations that Your purposes may prevail. May You save us and deliver us from all evil. May You grant us peace, love and unity in our nation. May Your righteousness prevail in our nation dear Lord Jesus. May You grant the gift of salvation upon all the people. May every dry bone live in this nation we prophecy life and speak life for our nation. We declare that we shall always all keep Your commandments by Your grace and divine enablement. We declare that we are blessed in the city and in the country. We declare that we are blessed when we come in and when we go out. We declare that we blessed and extremely fruitful for we have built our foundation in You dear Lord Jesus Christ. We pray this believing and trusting in Jesus Holy and Mighty name. Amen

Acts 13:36 NIV

Now when David had served God’s purpose in his own generation, he fell asleep; he was buried with his ancestors and his body decayed.”


David trusted in the Lord and had firm faith in God. In his Psalm 56:11, he asks, “In God I have put my trust; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” He placed his complete hope and faith in God even when he was confronted by his enemies and faced by many troubles. David had great faith in God and was courageous enough to face the Philistine giant Goliath. 1 Samuel 17:47 says that, “Then all this assembly shall know that the Lord does not save with sword and spear; for the battle is the Lord’s, and He will give you into our hands.” David trusted in God and His mighty power and he became victorious in war and his endeavors. When king Saul pursued him and his intention was to kill him even as the Holy Spirit filled David and left Saul (1 Samuel 16:13-14). David knew that when he draws near to God in obedience and humility, he will be lifted up and will be able to complete his course. David was a man after God’s own heart. We are called to submit to God and be at peace with Him and we will enjoy prosperity (Job 22:21).


Dear Lord Jesus we thank You for this beautiful day that You have created. You have created the skies and the birds. You have created the sun and the skies. You have formed the trees and the mountains. You have created the animals and sea creatures. All creation praises You, let all creation lift Your name high. We exalt You Lord Jesus and bless Your name for this far that You have brought us. You have been our Lord and Shield for the past six months of this year, and we trust that You shall surely be with us for the remain part of the year. May You increase our faith in You dear Lord Jesus Christ. We trust in You Lord Jesus, we believe in You alone. Upon You only do we place our faith, Jesus Christ our foundation and shield. We declare that we shall always have faith in You and not in our leaders, wealth, positions, strength and wisdom. May You protect our youth and all people even as they go to the street today dear loving Savior. May You shield them with Your precious blood dear Lord Jesus. May Your mercy be upon our nation and save us from our troubles. We destroy every foundation that is ungodly in this nation and speak breakthrough and peace upon our nation. We declare that we shall be prosperous and many other nations will call us blessed. We declare that we shall lend to many nations and borrow from none. We declare that provision is our portion and Lord we know that You shall supply all our needs according to Your riches in glory. We declare that we shall live according to Your divine purposes. We declare and decree that Your purposes for our nation Kenya shall come to pass at Your appointed time. We pray this believing and trusting in Jesus mighty name. Amen

John 20:26-31 NIV

A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.” Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!” Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”


Jesus’ purpose is revealed as our Messiah and Savior who delivered us from sin and eternal death. John 3:16, one of the most memorized scriptures reminds us that, whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. Thomas a disciple of Jesus who walked with Him for approximately three years did not believe. Thomas was doubtful even after Jesus resurrected, he did not believe in His word but by seeing Him and touching the wounds. Jesus says to us today, “blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed” (John 20:29). To fully discover and walk in our purposes, Jesus calls us to first believe in Him and depend upon Him for His purposes cannot be thwarted (Job 42:2).


Purpose in Greek is written as prothesis which can be dissected into two words, pro which means before and thesis which means a place or a setting forth. The word proposes, a deliberate plan, proposition, advance plan, an intention or a design. Everyone of us have a purpose that should drive us. God has created each one of us uniquely to serve a particular purpose. We form the body of Christ, and members individually. Some are apostles, others prophets, teachers, gift of miracles, healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues, speak with tongues, interpretation of tongues. Some are apostles, prophets, teachers and workers of miracles (1 Corinthians 12:27-30). God knew this purpose before we were formed in our mothers wombs. God sanctified us and ordained us to be prophets or any other purpose that He prepared for us (Jeremiah 1:4-5). God sanctifies us with His precious blood and grant us favor and grace to achieve and accomplish the great work ordained for us. Each one has a mandate to fulfill and when the common funeral scripture is read about any one of us, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith” (2 Timothy 4:7). It will be true. We will be true witnesses of God’s word. David served God’s purpose in his own generation, he died and was buried and his body decayed (Acts 13:36). David left a lasting mark during his generation and the generations to come. Purpose ultimately points to God’s eternal plan relating to salvation. Our personal salvation was not only well planned but demonstrates God’s abiding faithfulness as He waits the consummation of His great plan for His people and the church. Let us therefore not faint or be discouraged as we endure to serve God in our purposes for all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).


Dear Lord we are Yours, we belong to You. We are Your workmanship, created in You Christ Jesus to do good works, which You prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. You have created us in Your own image and likeness, may You help us and use us to disciple, create, implement, preach, move according to Your divine frequency for greater works than the ones You did dear Jesus Christ. May You bless us and keep us dear Lord Jesus. May You shine Your face towards us and be gracious unto us. May You show Your countenance unto us and give us peace. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us now and forevermore. Amen
