Ever visited another country? How were you treated? Some say the French are rude and the Brits are snobs. But South Africans have shown the world that we win at Xenophobia.

God is clear. Hatred of foreigners is not part of His plan. Leviticus 19:33-34 says: ‘Never mistreat a foreigner living in your land because you were foreigners’ too. For a biblical response and prayer strategy, see http://bit.ly/1NXi0X6.

Ask God to reveal any xenophobic attitudes in your heart. Repent and pray for justice on perpetrators (including leaders who incite it) and mercy for foreigners in our nation.
