What is on Your List of Great Prayers of the Old Testament?

Tuesday is for Preach

Hannah's PrayerI am making a list of great prayers of the Old Testament. It is a pretty subjective list and there are a lot of them. When I say “great” I don’t mean “long” or prayed by someone “significant.”

I am thinking more in terms of the situation out of which it was prayed and the answer that God gave. I need to pair the list down for a series of expositions.

Question:  

What prayers in the Old Testament make your top 5 list of “greatest prayers”?

  1. Here are a few of mine:

    Hannah’s prayer in 1 Samuel 1 : A Prayer from a Broken Heart
    Jehoshaphat’s prayer in 2 Chronicles 20 ; A Prayer in a National Crisis
    Elijah’s prayer in 1 Kings 18 : A Prayer for the Glory of God
    Nehemiah’s prayer in Nehemiah 1 : A Prayer for Success Against Opposition

    That’s a start.
