CarolMarie Smith

CarolMarie Smith is Founder of Anna’s Gate International who is raising up “Annas” worldwide to keep the fires of prayer burning on the altar. It is taken after Anna in Luke chapter two in the scriptures. Anna fasted and prayed in the temple opening the gate to transformation for the nation and generations. Anna instantly gave thanks and spoke to all that looked for redemption (vs 38)! In that vein, CarolMarie teaches the Body of Christ Prophetic Prayer Power through seminars and weekend schools. Training with certification and resources are also available online as prayer networks are being established globally.

CarolMarie is an international speaker and writer, inspiring audiences worldwide as they learn prayer strategies and align with God’s timetable to see breakthrough in their lives and communities.

CarolMarie is the co-author of the “Widows Ministry Leadership Training” manual that has been translated into seven languages and used around the world in Bible Schools and Seminaries. The teachings and revelations lift off hopelessness and move the church into a place of greater power and blessing.
