If you notice the shofar above you should get the idea that God is sending
out a call. Actually he is sending out several calls, but one of them is
for believers to rise to pray and take up the intercessions of Jesus. The
would be the right idea.
If you notice the name of this area of ministry within Shammah, Prayer
Time Corpus Christi, you might get the idea that we relay that call of
God to our city. That would also be z right idea, but an incomplete for a
very special reason.
Corpus Christi is Latin for The Living Body of Christ. We are
involved in relaying that call to the Body of Christ with as much reach as
the Holy Spirit gives us. We don't want any more reach than He gives us
but we don't want to miss anyone within our reach either. To that end, God
has given us grace to reach out through several media.
We produce a weekly television broadcast, Prayer Time Corpus Christi.
It is aired on our local cable channel 18. It is aired twice a
week at 9 AM on Mondays and 7 PM on Thursdays. The content varies from
interviews with folks who bring something significant to the call to
gather for prayer to workshop teachings such as SPMI conducts with church
and prayer groups to relevant prophetic strategies and pointers being
revealed to the Body of Christ by the Holy Spirit.
Corpus Christi is blessed with a free Christ centered newspaper called
The Voice of the Times. William Lumry is an invited contributor to its
monthly content. Presently William is submitting tactics and strategies
born in satanic regions which are designed to undermine and confound the
purposes of God within The Body of Christ. Additionally, William is
writing at the same time concerning how God is countering Satan's plans
with brief teaching on the Biblical authenticity of God's counter
It is important to note that God does not and is not
playing catch-up. God's purposes are from before the foundations of the
earth and they cannot be thwarted (Job 42:2). But God answers every
satanic imagination raised up against the knowledge of God (2 Cor. 10:5).
We broadcast specific prayer alerts to those who we KNOW have
training, background, experience and covering. We usually do this by way
of the US Mail and email. We are selective and warn that there is danger
in drawing well intentioned, but uninitiated believers into some areas.
SPMI considers a large part of its responsibility to assist the local
church in their efforts to qualify, train and protect those who follow the
Holy Spirit into significant prayer and intercession.
We communicate with and chronicle what God is saying to other
intercessors. Many warnings and other prompts of the Holy Spirit go
unnoticed and un-broadcast because it is easy to discount them. Many
times, those who hear such things think they are the only ones when that
is actually not true. While we do not solicit people to keep us informed,
we do trust God to prompt that kind of sharing and we teach others how to
discriminate what they are hearing and we teach them some responsible
actions to take when they are called for. When appropriate, we broadcast
relevant communiqués as described above.
