      We cover all roads in Zambia with the blood of Jesus. We stop and blind every evil eye in the spiritual realm, on earth and under the earth causing accident on our roads. We dispatch worrying Angles to fight and abolish any means of evil causing accident on our roads. Every person travelling in and out of Zambia shall come back home safely.
      The glory of the most high God and the holy spirit of our God Jehovah has covered the land from today. No accidents on any of the roads in Jesus name.
