Jesse Taitt: Intercessory Missionary at IHOP-AC!

jesse

This is Jesse Taitt. He is 22 years old. He went to Liberty University for less then 1 semester and then dropped out to join the prayer movement! He has done an internship at IHOP-KC for 6 months 2 years ago, and he did the same internship as me here at IHOP-AC.

He has been an intercessory missionary for about 2 years now. He is so passionate about the Lord and what the Lord is doing right now! He is a powerful intercessor and an amazing worship leader!

Here is his interview:

How did you get involved in the prayer room?

After high school, I went to college just like everyone else does. At the end of the first semester I went to IHOP-KC for a conference and saw people my age who genuinely loved the Lord, who prayed with passion, who wept with sorrow and who had joy too. After that conference the Lord told me to go there. (Jesse ended up going and doing the 6 month internship I mentioned above. And has been in the prayer room ever since!)

How is your life different now then before you were in the prayer room?

I’m still the same person with the same struggles as everyone else. But before graduating high school, I lived in the religious routine with no excitement or anticipation for the presence of the Lord. After graduation I began to desire to grow in deeper intimacy. Now, there is a desire for holiness which is growing each day. A desire for intimacy experientially. I have began to live a lifestyle of prayer and fasting. Anyone who knew me before wouldn’t say I was a person who prayed or fasted because I am a people person and prayer is so contemplative and meditative. And I really like food. πŸ™‚

What would you say to someone who wanted to join the prayer movement as an intercessory missionary?

I would say that’s awesome, it’s going to be so exciting. Each person’s experience in the prayer room will be different, so there isn’t much I would say.

What is the best thing about the prayer room?

The best thing about it for me is that I get to meet with God. Be in the presence of the Lord. It doesn’t always look like a mountaintop experience but the valley’s bring your heart to surrender and tenderize your spirit.

What is the hardest thing about the prayer room?

The hardest thing is people that you are seeing 8 hours a day, every day for seemingly the rest of your life. You see their weaknesses, they see yours and you see each other trying to pursue the Lord. So you have to look past your own weaknesses, look beyond their weaknesses, through the eyes of grace and understand positionally we have all been granted the free girft of righteousness. Forgive, forgive, forgive. Ask for forgiveness, ask for forgiveness, ask for forgiveness.

What are your roles at IHOP-AC?

I pretty much have four things but one will be in the future. 1) lover of God 2) intercessory 3) worship leader and the fourth future one is preacher, but not a normal preacher, more like John the Baptist.

What is your favorite verse?

I have two, Joel 2:28 and 1 Cor. 15:51-53. Because they show the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the bride to walk victoriously in power through the greatest trouble the world has ever known and ever will know unto the return of the Lord, the resurrection of the saints and our dwelling in eternal communion with Jesus.

There is a tradition here at The Watch, every internship the night watch staff listens to the interns testimonies andΒ  as the Lord moves speak His heart to them. And then at the end, they all decide on a name that fits with what the Lord was speaking. A Prophetic name, and then we get the name written on a night watch hoodie. So tonight they decided on Juliette for me. The reason…one of my prophetic words was that I was like Juliet (Romeo and Juliet), with unabandoned love, a romance with the Beloved. Also others words that I received were about being colorful and energetic. Juliette (they decided not to spell it after Shakespeare:) means divinely youthful. So this is my name. I really love it. I always thought my name would be Anna, but I love the reckless romance (thats it!) like Mary of Bethany which moves me into the intercession as Anna. So this name has a lot of meanings for me, and its my new name from the Lord! I just might name one of my children that…one day…:)
