We've Got Dumbo Ears!
Dr. CarolMarie Smith 
As I prayed for the ladies of South Carolina, I saw their ears growing!  Their ears continued to grow until they were like the ears of the elephant named "Dumbo" in the Walt Disney movie!  Much like his ears, which grew so much that he was able to fly, these ladies were being empowered as well!

Then I heard the Lord say, "Just like I hear their cry, I am enabling them to hear me more clearly".  I knew He was referring to Ex 22:23 that "He certainly hears the cry of the fatherless and the widow"!  Until this time I had not realized we were being equipped to hear Him greater!  How amazing! We were being empowered through hearing His voice, to rise above the circumstances and see things as He sees them!  Wow! (John 5:19)

This happened as I was preparing for a widow's prayer conference for a group of ladies that knew how to reach God through their prayers!  As I later shared with the ladies what the Lord had shown me, excitement filled the room!  Praise rose up to a higher level as they caught hold of the fact that their "fine-tuning" was being enhanced!

God wants to do this for us all!  He desires greater intimacy.  He desires for us to embrace where we are instead of thinking we do not fit!  Dumbo felt different and was laughed at because of his big ears.  He did not appreciate the circumstance he was in until there was a need for him to use his ears for something special.  Then others appreciated him and his ability.


It is the same with the widow!  I get texts, calls and emails from all over the world asking to have the widows pray.  Because we see results!  Our widow's prayer team have fresh purpose like Dumbo did when he found his unique call!   God hears the prayer of the widow!  His ear is turned to our lips!  And He will establish our territory! (Pro 15:25) We have a unique purpose for this end-time harvest!  We were chosen to live at this time in History!  We are an essential part of the Body of Christ!  Stop feeling like you don't fit, but instead appreciate your "big ears"!  They are for such a time as this!

If you would like our widow's prayer team to pray for you, please write to me at or click the prayer request button on our website:  Share your need and include your email or phone number (text) so we can send you any insights we may get.  We will rejoice with you over your big ears!

Connect with Anna's Gate and bless the widow!  Visit our group if you are in the area for the 4 PM Tuesday teaching and filming or call the office to see how you can enter the blessing that is yours!  Live webcasts (4:30 pm EST) can be seen on my personal Facebook page: CarolMarie Smith. Notes for these teachings can be found on Your gifts of kindness help us empower widows around the world.  Monthly partnerships are so appreciated and are pure religion (James 1:27) for Anna's Gate cares for the fatherless and the widow! Thank you for making a difference!

Be sure to read the Torah portions below that Jesus read during this time in history!  There is always something that relates to us in our place in history now!  That's so amazing to me!
