Pop-Up Prayer: Guest Elsy Arévalo

Pop-Up Prayer hosted by Joe Paprocki

Welcome to our new summer series, Pop-Up Prayer—brief interviews on the topic of prayer with prominent people in pastoral ministry from all over the country! We could all use some tips when it comes to prayer, especially during these very difficult and challenging times. In this episode, Elsy Arévalo, Instructor and Assistant Director of the Center for Religion and Spirituality at Loyola Marymount University, explains that prayer is not about us reaching out to God as if we have to chase God down, but rather consenting to God meeting us where we are.

Be sure to check out the many resources on prayer and many excellent books on the topic of prayer available from Loyola Press!
