"For" and "with" are closely alike in this context.

As you expand the context, a better word choice may emerge, but in the phrases cited, both words are correct.

For the single purpose / With the single purpose

for the single purpose of 还是选with the single purpose of

Remember, this piece of cloth is for the single purpose of wiping the altar of Buddha. Please don't use it for anything else.

She went into the bar with the single purpose of picking up a guy.

Actually, sole purpose would be better.
