Constant Prayer

Do you not just love the contrast with which Luke wrote the following? “Peter was therefore kept in prison, but constant prayer was offered to God for him by the church” (Acts 12:5).
The church did not despair over Peter’s situation, but presented it to God. Herod kept Peter in prison, but the church knew it had something greater, which was the power of prayer.
If someone presented a despairing situation to you, what would you do?
