" Before faith came " has both a historical and a personal meaning. Historically , Paul is talking about the age of the law, before Christ (see Paul's temporal restatement in 24b where "before faith came" is restated as "until Christ came). Personally, Paul is talking about those who had no faith who now have faith. Now that faith has come to them (25a) they have been adopted as children and are now called "sons of God" (26b). " We " is important. "We" refers (historically; in verses 23 and 24) to Jews , and (personally; in verses 25 thru 29) to Christians - for the "we" are those to whom the "faith has come." When preaching, we won't be preaching to the "we's" to whom faith has come, but to those who are still "held captive under the law" and "imprisoned." Our prayer is that "faith will come" as it has to those represented in verse 25. Our prayer is that the law will not be their executioner (thou that would be just), but their pedagogue (or ' guardian ' (24a)). Our prayer is that, by faith, their imprisonment (23b) would end and the law would have proven to be (though strict and mean) a good friend that has led them to put on Christ (27a,b).
