Praying for the Nations – Operation World

Operation World, by Patrick Johnstone, is an amazing book resource that provides demographic and geographical information for every nation in the world, as well as specific prayer requests and answers to prayer. It is arranged in calendar format so that you can pray for the whole world in the course of a year. I have found it helpful in the past both as a source of information and as a guide to prayer for the nations. Our family has also used the children’s version called You Can Change the World in our family prayer times.

So I was very excited to learn that Operation World has put together a daily web page called Operation World – Pray Today. Each day you get information and prayer requests pertaining to a different part of the world. (For example, today’s focus nation is Brunei in Southeast Asia). I encourage you to check it out and make it a part of your regular prayer life.

A big thanks to Justin Taylor over at Between Two Worlds for bringing this to my attention on his blog today.

    Hi Ray,

    Thanks for the tip on this subject. I wanted to update you on some happenings at E.E, John Burns, John Palsgrove and myself attended the annual international EE banquet at Coral Ridge this past Friday. It was really a great evening. This was the first Banquet that Dr. Kennedy did not attend. As you may be aware, he suffered a Cardiac problem in January and is still recouperating in a rehab hospital in Michigan. Anyway, the goal for EE over the next 15 years is to bring an additional 1 billion people to Christ. Its a really exciting plan and a large focus will be China and Indonesia. Anyway, I thought you might like to hear what is happening with EE. Take Care Pastor and keep up the good work.

    I have fond memories of Coral Ridge and the E.E. banquet. I am glad that you, John and John were able to attend. What a wonderful goal they have set! I pray that God will continue to use the ministry of E.E. to introduce many to Jesus Christ.
