Each year Open Doors USA releases the World Watch List, a detailed analysis of Christian persecution worldwide. In this free resource, countries are evaluated and ranked according to the severity of persecution that occurred in the past year. They offer the World Watch List free as part of their mission at Open Doors to inform and inspire others with the message of the persecuted.
Inside the current year World Watch List you will find extensive information for each of the top 50 countries for the current year. You will learn how persecution has intensified or decreased in the last year and projections for the coming year.
Eternal Perspective Ministries has also created a handout How to Help the Persecuted Church that has a brief list of the top 10 countries, as well as practical ways to learn, help, and pray for the persecuted church around the world.
