I know there is a way to do this but I have a mind block on what way to take. I want to see of Paul's prayers for his churches. I know their is a resource (Carson's) but I don't have it.......

How would you go about this...

There are other more refined approaches, but this is the first that comes to mind. Building from a right click method. First, identify an example verse. I used Ro 15.30-33 identified by searching for "amen." Next, right click on a word within the prayer, select Prayer from context menu followed by search this resource. Open another search panel, right click on "I,"  select Paul from context menu and again search this resource. Copy syntax from search panel. Merge the two search results using INTERSECTS operator. See result.

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

I highly recommend Rosscup's 5 volume, 2900 page exposition on every prayer in the Bible. I picked it up when it was part of a base pkg several years ago.

You will need a resource like this. Logos is insufficiently tagged for this kind of search. Romans 15:5-6, for example, is not marked with any indication of prayer.

Key Apostolic Prayers NIV verses

Ephesians 1:17–19
17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength
Ephesians 3:16–19
16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Philippians 1:9–11
9 And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, 10 so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.
Colossians 1:9–11
9 For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, 10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, 11 being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience,
Romans 15:5–6
5 May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, 6 so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Romans 15:13
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 1:5–8
5 For in him you have been enriched in every way—with all kinds of speech and with all knowledge—6 God thus confirming our testimony about Christ among you. 7 Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. 8 He will also keep you firm to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Thessalonians 3:10–13
10 Night and day we pray most earnestly that we may see you again and supply what is lacking in your faith. 11 Now may our God and Father himself and our Lord Jesus clear the way for us to come to you. 12 May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you. 13 May he strengthen your hearts so that you will be blameless and holy in the presence of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all his holy ones.
2 Thessalonians 1:11–12
11 With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may bring to fruition your every desire for goodness and your every deed prompted by faith. 12 We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Concur Romans 15:5-6 could have "Preaching Theme of Prayer: Petition" tagging added.

+1 Yes for Rosscup's life work:

Milestone search can find pray OR prayer in resources that have Romans 15:5-6 Bible milestone

(pray OR prayer) WITHIN {Milestone <Ro15.5-6>}

One Rosscup volume => An Exposition on Prayer in the Bible: Romans-Revelation includes all of Paul's prayers, which can be searched for advocacy OR "other Christians" to find many prayers:
