World Watch List - 2016
What is it like to follow Jesus in the 50 most dangerous countries?
For the last 20 years Open Doors has produced the World Watch List, ranking the top 50 countries where it is most difficult to be a Christian.
This well researched report is compiled by a group of experts, audited by an outside organisation specialising in religious freedom and it is credited as the best and most authoritative report of its kind. Through on the ground interviews and data analysis, the list provides an accurate picture of the difficulties persecuted Christians experience around the word.
But the list is not just numbers and figures, it represents those who have decided to follow Jesus no matter what the cost may be. In many countries believers encounter intimidation, prison or in some countries even death.
We invite you to learn more and pray for the millions of believers around the world where persecution is a reality.
“IF WE WANT TO LEAVE AN INDELIBLE MARK ON THE WORLD, THERE IS NO MORE POWERFUL WAY TO DO IT THAN BY JOINING IN GOD’S PURPOSES THROUGH PRAYER. OUR PRAYERS CAN GO WHERE WE CANNOT. WHILE MANY THINGS MAY SEEM IMPOSSIBLE FROM A HUMAN STANDPOINT, IN THE REALM OF PRAYER THERE ARE NO IMPOSSIBILITIES.”
