Jenny Sawyer: Recently, one of my colleagues, David Brown, interviewed Bob Cochran on Sentinel Watch. At one point, Bob talked about how he’d been praying every day for multiple hours. Well, more than a few of our listeners wrote to us because they wanted to know more about that. Some of them said things like, “I have trouble praying even for five minutes. How does Bob manage two to three hours?” So, we asked Bob if he’d be willing to share what he’s learned about prayer.
