A man who was the breadwinner of his family began envying his wife for being able to stay home for most of the day; hence, his prayer.


A man who worked for his family had a housewife, whom he envied and wanted to experience what he went through every day, so one night he prayed:

“I go to work every day and put in eight hours while my wife merely stays at home. I want her to know what I go through, so please create a trade in our bodies.”


The Lord heard the man’s words and decided to grant his prayer. The next morning, he woke up in his wife’s body.

In his new form, the husband got up from bed to cook breakfast for his wife and kids. He then woke up their children and prepared their clothes and packed their lunches for school.

After, he fed them, dropped them off school, went home to get the dry cleaning, and left it at the dry cleaners. Before going back, he stopped by the bank to withdraw and drove to the electric and phone company to pay the bills.


He then proceeded to the grocery shop, headed home, and fixed what he bought. Next, he cleared the cat’s litter box and bathed their dog.

By then, it was 1 pm, and he had to hurry to make the kids’ bed, do the laundry, vacuum, sweep, and clean the kitchen floor.

After doing household chores, he had to run to pick the kids up and managed to get into an argument with them during the drive home. Home at last, he prepared snacks for the kids and organized to do their homework.


Then, he ironed the clothes while watching television, just in time to begin preparing for dinner at 4:30. He peeled potatoes and washed the vegetables to pair with their breaded pork chop.

After dinner, he washed the dishes, folded the laundry, gave the children a shower, and put them to bed. By 9 pm, he was exhausted but still had to go to bed, where he was expected to make love, which he did not complain about.


When the man woke up the following day, he knelt by the bed, closed his eyes, and prayed to the Lord. He said:

“Lord, I don’t know what I was thinking. I was so wrong to envy my wife’s being able to stay home all day. Please, oh please, let us trade back.”

God heard him and immediately replied: “My son, I feel you have learned your lesson, and I will be happy to change things back to the way they were. You’ll have to wait nine months, though. You got pregnant last night.”
