The fourth guiding principle of our document Love the Stranger
We recognise the right of all people to flourish in their homeland; every nation has a duty to uphold this by working for peace, promoting good governance and tackling the causes of poverty
We pray for our politicians,
that their decisions may be guided by compassion
and that they may recognise the need to tackle the reasons why people may leave their homelands
Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.
