This week's Sentinel Watch podcast 

Man thinking

A primer on prayer

August 14 to 20

Guest: Nate Frederick

Whether you turn to God first thing or as a last resort in times of trouble, there’s always more to learn about prayer. Our guest this week, Nate Frederick, has learned that healing prayer is not asking God to change things, but understanding more about God and allowing that understanding to change us.
