"For those like me who will quietly confess that Operation World was a little overwhelming in terms of information, meet the more concise and user-friendly Pray for the World. I will use this personally―especially the calendar that helps me pray for all of the countries of the world in one year. I will use it in mobilizing local churches to greater global understanding and intercession, and I will use it in the classroom to introduce students to global realities. My Bible tells me what God wants to do in the world; Pray for the World directs me on how to pray." (Paul Borthwick, senior consultant, Development Associates International, author, Western Christians in Global Mission)
"An extraordinary work, Pray for the World is an invaluable contribution to the growing body of Christian Studies literature on the subject of prayer. Very strongly recommended for church, seminary, and academic library collections." (Helen Dumont, The Midwest Book Review, July 2015)
"Pray for the World offers the perfect solution for people who desire to pray with knowledge for the nations." (Mary Pat Johns, Baptist Standard, June 1, 2015)
"For decades, Operation World has been the world's leading resource for people who want to impact the nations for Christ through prayer. Its twofold purpose has been to inform for prayer and to mobilize for mission. Now the research team of Operation World offers this abridged version of the 7th edition called Pray for the World as an accessible resource to facilitate prayer for the nations." (Light Magazine Canada, April 2015)
"This book gives a picture of every country of the world and the state of the church and the lost. May it stimulate much-informed prayer that receives answers!" (From the foreword by Patrick Johnstone, author of Operation World and The Future of the Global Church)
"Operation World has long been an invaluable guide for globally minded Christians and churches. Now Pray for the World is an even more accessible version―a perfect resource for encouraging and mobilizing groups and individuals in prayer for God's global mission!" (Tom Lin, vice president of missions, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA, director, Urbana Student Missions Conference)
"The advancement of the gospel is always to be coupled by desperate prayer. Whether we are told to pray for laborers, for open doors for ministry or that the Word would spread rapidly and be honored, the Bible is clear: when it comes to kingdom expansion, prayer is crucial. Pray for the World is a valuable tool to assist us in global disciple making. Incredibly informative, well-written, easy-to-understand and to-the-point, this book is a helpful guide as we work to carry out the Great Commission. Read it, keep it close by, and pray, pray, pray!" (J. D. Payne, PhD, pastor of church multiplication, The Church at Brook Hills, Birmingham, Alabama)
"Prayer is the fuel of global missions. No book, ministry or resource has done more to mobilize God's people to pray as Operation World. And so, it is with great delight that I recommend Pray for the World. This new tool will mobilize immeasurably more prayer, bringing the latest research from the Operation World team to a broader audience. What a service they've performed for the global church and for the least reached peoples. Take up and read . . . and pray!" (Michael Oh, executive director and CEO of the Lausanne Movement)

I heartily agree with theses following words that come from the preface of Operation World, reminding me of the privilege of being apart of God's global work through prayer: "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 am using this book almost daily to pray for other countries. In Luke chapter 18 in the Bible, we are told by Christ prayer makes a difference. The bread at midnight story and the older lady and the judge help us see that God will respond as you pray. Try it.
