    Question On a wing and a prayer

    i read a slang i think ,but i am not sure

    it is 'On a wing and a prayer"

    it is from the dialog of "the office":one chacture asked :How do you live with a franchise this bad?
    and the other answered:On a wing and a prayer mostly.

    Not a teacher only a native.

    'On a wing and a prayer' means only just coping or doing something that has little chance of success.
