A praying church

‘Lutherans encouraged to ‘be a praying church’ ’ 
The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod
Peachtree City, Georgia. November 2, 2012.

Speaking on the last day of the International Conference on Confessional Leadership, in Peachtree City, Georgia, the Rev. Dr. Gemechis Buba of the North American Lutheran Church encouraged global Lutherans to “be a praying church one more time.”

Buba presented on the topic of Witness (Martyría), urging leaders, “Don’t try to figure out missional strategies and plans. Jesus never outsourced missional leadership to anyone.” Instead, he said: “Ask. Be on your knees. Let us be a praying church one more time,” reminding attendees that Witness work is only “in the hand of the Holy Spirit.”

More than 120 confessional leaders representing 20 million Lutherans around the world attended the three-day conference, journeying from Latin America, North America, Asia, Africa, Europe, and Australia. The conference was sponsored by The Lutheran Church
—Missouri Synod.
