"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)
"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, author of Radical)
"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." (K. P. Yohannan, Gospel for Asia)
"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)
"This is probably one of the most important missionary tools in the entire history of missions." (George Verwer, Operation Mobilization)
"The scope and thoroughness of the research done by Jason Mandryk and his colleagues is truly commendable." (Joseph D'souza, Dalit Freedom Network)
"A tremendously useful resource that I use personally, with my family and in my ministry." (Geoff Tunnicliffe, World Evangelical Alliance)
About the Author
A master's graduate in global Christian studies from Providence College and Theological Seminary in Canada, Jason Mandryk sensed that God was putting in him a more global calling to see the big picture, to analyze the trends and to communicate the global challenge to the church. Jason coauthored the sixth edition of Operation World, released in 2001, with Patrick Johnstone. A regular speaker at mission events, Jason specializes in mission mobilizing, focusing on the biblical basis for mission and weighing strategic considerations for mission today and in the future.

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.
