A few months ago, the popular American preacher TD Jakes came to the church I attend in London. Preaching on leadership and wealth, he said prayer is not leadership and won’t make anyone rich. “If prayers were enough”, he said, “Nigeria would be one of the richest countries in the world”.

1. Check fluid levels Transmission fluid keeps everything running smoothly, so it makes sense that if the fluid level is down that it will mean you are going to run into problems.
