As I was reading the chapter on intercession, I loved the part that said, "Intercession accelerates God's purposes in the earth. ..There are many things God has purposed for this planet, and they will most certainly happen; the only question is, will they happen in and with and through us? Will we participate? God's purposes will happen, but they will not happen sooner."
I have always been an "I needed it yesterday" person. I stand at the microwave and tap my foot and say, "hurry up" when I'm heating up something. I don't like to wait to see things once I have a vision of it. I know patience is a virtue, but I also think sometimes we do wait needlessly. We could see things happen a lot sooner if we only prayed more.
