Good question, with no easy answer. One might ask "Do we exist?" and, if so, for what purpose? Paix, mon ami.
"One could ask "Do we require purpose?"" Another good question. Still, having some relevant and authentic purpose other than just existence might be helpful. In the Jewish faith this purpose is seen through "mitzvahs", which are good deeds towards all sorts of people/things (e.g., family, ordinary people, animals, nature, etc.).

Seriously, purpose needs to be found/created, or else we are just here, regardless of whether or not there is a God.
"If we are to have a purpose in this universe, and that purpose is given to us by God, who gives God his purpose?" Interesting point, guytoronto.

Poems are made by fools like me,
but only God can make a tree.
And only God who makes this tree,
also makes the fools like me.
But only fools like me, you see,
can make a God who makes a tree.
