PROPHET MARY THOMPSON
Prophet (NCCA), Atlanta, Georgia, USA – Covenant Network
The first thing that Prophet Mary remembered hearing as a child, is the voice of the Lord and a sense that there was a call on her life. However, the circumstances of life left her wounded and broken. Mary has an inheritance that the enemy tried to steal, a voice he tried to silence, vision and senses he tried to pervert, a life he wanted to end, BUT GOD!
The key for Mary, was finding how to address these areas of torment, and to take back everything the enemy had stolen.
Her career as a rough diamond evaluator facilitated her first visit to South Africa in 2011. She then found New Covenant Church of Atlanta in 2012. It was there, that the unlocking and convergence of God’s plan for her life began.
Mary was ordained as a prophet in NCCA (Covenant Network) in March 2017.
Mary’s heart and passion is for freedom (Isaiah 61:1). For those whom the Savior has set free, are free indeed!
