In the Old Testament, the prophets and kings would pray very specific prayers in regards to what they were facing or what was going on in the nation of Israel at that particular time. In the New Testament, the early Christians often received letters from the church leaders to encourage them in their Christian faith. In Paul’s letters to the different churches, he prayed very specific prayers, depending on what was going on in the life of the church at the time of his letter. Examples include: Ephesians 1:16-17; Philippians 1:3-11; Colossians 1:3-14.
