"For years I have used Operation World to pray for people in every tongue, tribe and nation. Operation World is a time-honored and well-tested global manual of prayer that will provide you with everything you need to bring the nations of the world before the throne of God. It will expand your heart, vision and passion for the peoples of the world and God's deep desire to reach those in the darkest corners with his help and hope."--Joni Eareckson Tada, author of A Place of Healing: Wrestling with the Mysteries of Suffering, Pain, and God's Sovereignty
"A veritable source of mission information about the status of the remaining task and a tool that brings together in one volume detailed update that inspires passion for the unreached and stirs up hearts to intercede."--Reuben Ezemadu, Movement for African National Initiatives
"An invaluable source of background information on every country we work in . . . . It has provided an objective platform of information that combines well with our own experiential perceptions in the task of strategic planning."--Christopher J. H. Wright, author of The Mission of God
"The scope and thoroughness of the research done by Jason Mandryk and his colleagues is truly commendable."--Joseph D'souza, Dalit Freedom Network

"In the world of missions, I know of nothing more significant than Operation World when it comes to learning about the need, opportunity and prayer points for world evangelism. Next to your Bible, Operation World will be the most important book you own. Go nowhere without it. Pray daily, sharing the burden of our Lord."--K. P. Yohannan, international director, Gospel for Asia
"Outside of the Bible, no book has had a greater practical impact on my personal prayer life than Operation World. God has used this book to open my eyes and the eyes of the church I pastor to the needs of the world and the greatness of the God who desires to make his glory known in the world. I eagerly welcome this new edition and wholeheartedly recommend it."--David Platt, senior pastor, The Church at Brook Hills, Birmingham, Alabama, and author of the New York Times bestseller Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream

Jesus commanded his disciples, "Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest" (Jn. 4:35). At this point the disciples were not thinking about harvesting people, much less the despised Samaritan people group. But later, by the help of the Holy Spirit they did "lift up their eyes," and catch a vision for reaching the ends of the earth with gospel of their Risen Christ!
Over the years, through using this resource in private prayer and in our family worship, God has "lifted up my eyes" to the harvest and given me bigger vision both for what God is doing and the vast needs that still remain among the 7 billion people in this world. This book has not only informed me about gospel work, but has reminded me often that I server a BIG God who is doing GREAT things in HIS world. I often feel the wonder of the privilege it is to be apart of this unstoppable mission through informed prayer! I heartily agree with the words in the preface of this book, "Each and every prayer is a tiny piece of a great cosmic puzzle, which when fitted together will allow for the completion of the grand picture of the Almighty Lord's plan for humanity and the universe. We don't merely pray ABOUT the many points featured herein, we pray TOWARD something, and that something is magnificent - the fulfillment of the Father's purposes and His Kingdom come."
I recommend to you, if you know Christ and long for His kingdom to come, get a hold of this book, read it, pray it, and trust that one day you will meet people in heaven who are there because you prayed. Who knows, God may even call you or others in your family to go make disciples in one of these places."From William Carey's 'Enquiry' of 1792 to Operation World today, God has worked mightily across the centuries through statistics and maps, using them to propel men and women of faith and devotion to the places on earth" (p974)
Lastly, I also want to recommend the abridged version of this book, "Pray for the World" (April 2015). I recently stared using this smaller book (331 instead of 978 pages) and found it ideal for praying through the nations as family. Not only is the content abbreviated to about one page per country, but they organized the countries alphabetically by region. So instead of praying for Argentina and Armenia back to back (in Operation Wold), you pray for Argentina and Brazil back to back in this book. This helps provide a geographical context especially with kids.
Operation World is designed to be used as a prayer guide with a date listed at the bottom of each page so you can work your way through it in a year. Christians around the world can and will be informed, guided and inspired by this book. When we hear about a country in the news or when there is conflict in a region Operation World is a quick resource to learning about the country, understanding the issues and knowing how to pray. My church is using Operation World in weekly prayer meetings, focusing on one country each week. It can also be used by families during family meetings or prayer times, to teach children about our vast world and to educate them about world geography, the diversity of peoples and the vast need to spread the Gospel. Parents who are home schooling will also find this to be a valuable resource.
The Completely Revised -7th edition of Operation World was published in 2010 by Jason Mandryk so the information is as up to date as it possibly could be. Reading and studying Operation World is a great way to increase our knowledge of other countries and cultures and great way give us a heart for missions and to focus our prayers. And it is guaranteed to lessen our provincialism.
This book is encyclopedic in its scope and is a great source for data in order to be both informed and encouraged to pray for the world.
After the first section which deals with the why and wherefore, the book's first section gives an overview of what is happening in the world and various regions of the world.
The large section from pages 89 to 900 deals with the countries of the world in alphabetical order for information and prayer. The book closes with nine appendices going from "Global Facts and Figures" to "Frequently Asked Questions."
Mission leaders and missionaries need to have a copy of this book to keep themselves informed about the various countries of the world and to keep a global perspective. This book helps my wife and me to pray for the world in an orderly way.
I used this book to teach a class on ministry in European contexts at Dallas Theological Seminary. I cannot recommend it more highly. The DVD which of this book enables one to have PowerPoint presentations for missions programs in churches and teaching in theological schools.
For the geography enthusiast, the book individually covers each country in the world with statistics and description. This book is a global geography reference by itself.
For the statistics enthusiast, each country is enumerated with a breakdown of population demographics, ethnicity, religion, and more.
For the religious reader, each country is addressed from the Christian perspective, considering the oppression, persecution, violence, human trafficking, corruption, enslavement, discrimination, and moral decay of that country.
Overall, an invaluable textbook and reference guide to our world.
