Major (and minor prophets) in the OT
Disciples and converts in the NT
People who prayed the OT way:
*Most famous = King David, author of so many Psalms, user of the ephod [I could have that word wrong; been a long time since my bible study] (--kind of like throwing dice--) to see if God approved of him going to war or not.
*Samuel, also famous for prayer and prophecy, finally said he meant David, after he put Saul as King
*Joshua ... hey, the Battle of Jericho was ingenious
*In Judges, many were good, many were bad, many barely mentioned --but Deborah's story is well-known
*Ruth and connections prayed very well
*Esther had to pray like few others, and she got her job done
*Job looked on the left, the right, behind him, in front... couldn't find his God, but believed till close to too late
*Solomon = Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon. Lamentations
*Major prophets (always prayed and fasted and many other things, some strange indeed)--
--Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekial, Daniel [as I know it]
*Minor prophets (also prayed and fasted all the time)
--Ezra, Nehemiah, Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi
*Others who come to mind: Abraham and his offspring (not to mention Sarah), Adam and Eve and their offspring (mostly) and all those who 'begat' all those who stayed with their God and no other... like *Moses and (they almost got there) his people...
In the NT thousands of people followed Jesus and prayed and fasted. Those names we know are many. The few to put here as 'major prayers' are:
--John the Baptist, Jesus, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Paul, Peter, James, Jude (they all wrote gospels or epistles or both [except John the B. and Jesus; they didn't need to])...
and of course all their parents and all those Marys and many many other disciples; men, women and children.
