It is interesting that the prayer promotes Paul to the first rank. He was not one of "the Twelve," and he was converted to Christianity several years after Jesus ascended into Heaven.
Matthias, who was an apostle before Paul was, and who was elected in Acts 1 to take the place of Judas, is not mentioned here. His name does appear in the second half of the prayer among "the apostles and martyrs."
