3. So you have to pray for the car with everything you have

This car will take me to work in Jesus name.

Mr playing hide and seek. Mr Mechanic avoider. Dodging all the mechanics. Managing the car like a manager.

11. When your mechanic starts calling out everything that is wrong with your car

All these things, only this small car.

Let me go and manage it abeg.
