Every year Open Doors USA publishes their annual World Watch List documenting the countries in the world where Christians are most violently persecuted. While it can be difficult to live as a follower of Christ anywhere on the planet, in these countries it could cost you your life and the threat is not subsiding.

Here’s the top 10 list, all places where Christians face extreme persecution:

  1. North Korea
  2. Somalia
  3. Afganistan
  4. Pakistan
  5. Sudan
  6. Syria
  7. Iraq
  8. Iran
  9. Yemen
  10. Eritrea

Will you join me in praying for the followers of Christ who are trying to survive amidst the persecution in the countries? Also, please join me in praying for the true conversion, the heart change and the discovery of hope for the millions of people living in these places who would come to faith in Jesus if just given the opportunity.
