    Three men were hiking through a forest...
    when they came upon a large raging, violent river.

    Needing to get to the other side, the first man prayed:
    God, please give me the strength to cross the river.

    Poof!!!

    God gave him big arms and strong legs...
    and he was able to swim across in about 2 hours, having almost drowned twice.


    After witnessing that, the second man prayed:
    God, please give me the strength to cross the river.

    Poof!!!

    God gave him a rowboat and strong arms and strong legs...
    and he was able to row across in about an hour after almost capsizing once

    The third man prayed:

    'God, please give me the strength, the tools and the intelligence to cross the river'

    Poof!!!

    HE WAS TURNED INTO A WOMAN!!!

    She checked the map, hiked one hundred yards upstream...and walked across the bridge
