If you had been falsely accused and imprisoned, or if you had been rightfully imprisoned for a crime you did commit, what would be your prayer request of others? Would you want others praying for you to have better living conditions or better food? Or maybe you would want people to be praying for your release. The Apostle Paul was imprisoned for preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. He requested prayer from the Ephesian church, but his prayer request was quite different.
