Operation World, the definitive global prayer handbook, has been used by more than a million Christians to pray for the nations. Now in its 7th edition, it has been completely updated and revised by Jason Mandryk with a team of missionaries and researchers, and it covers the entire populated world.
Included in this updated and revised 7th edition:
Whether you are an intercessor praying behind the scenes for world change, a missionary abroad or simply curious about the world, Operation World will give you the information necessary to play a vital role in fulfilling the Great Commission.
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"This is probably one of the most important missionary tools in the entire history of missions."
"The scope and thoroughness of the research done by Jason Mandryk and his colleagues is truly commendable."
"A tremendously useful resource that I use personally, with my family and in my ministry."
