Another boring month, Leandro Cazaux thought as he sat in his Argentine home. He was gazing at the wet ground as the rain was pouring like buckets. He wished that it were sunny out because he had planned on going to Canada to visit his new girlfriend Dionne.

He had the money to go, and the transportation to get him to the airport, but with the weather being as bad as it was, he could not afford to go.

He breathed a heavy sigh as he got off the couch and wandered into his little office so he could write a letter yet again, explaining why he would not be able to come. He knew that his girlfriend would be upset, for he figured she was really looking forward to meeting him for the first time.

Leandro lit a gas lamp that was sitting on the desk and took out a sheet of paper and a pen. He put the pen to his mouth, then began to write. He wrote:

Dear Dionne,

I'm sorry I cannot make it to Canada again, please forgive me and I hope to hear from you soon. Signed Leandro.

Leandro then took an envelope that was lying near the end of the desk and put the letter in it.

After a third heavy sigh, Leandro got on his rain jacket and went out into the downpour. He ran as fast as he could to the post box and dropped the letter inside. Then, once returning home, he made a silent prayer that Dionne would be okay with it.

2 weeks later, Dionne received the letter and began to cry. She was all ready for her visit with Leandro, and now he was not coming. She was just ready to give up.

Suddenly, a knock came upon her door. She didn't recognize the person at first, and then later she did! It was Leandro! "Hello, is this the residence where Dionne lives?"

"Yes, I am Dionne. Come in Leandro, I have been expecting you."

So from that day forward Dionne never forgot to pray to God whenever she needed help. And neither did Leandro. He now knew that the power of prayer was more powerful than any electric bulb he would ever invent.
