St John Vianney spoke these wise words. We often think prayer is a tool to get the things we would like to have, that payer is a place where our troubles will find solutions. This is true, but I believe prayer is more than that. It is where you and I meet God and have a conversation with Him. It is where He shares in our joys and sorrows, where He accompanies us during our journey home, even if we do not get what we would like or find tangible solutions. However, just knowing that He is with us is enough to melt our sorrows away, like the snow before the sun.
