God of ice and snow,
sustain those who live in the bleak and inhospitable wastes of the world.
Where there is hunger, let people be fed. Where there is cold, let people be warm.
In times of loneliness, may there be friendship.
In times of fear, may there be confidence
that through the skills which you teach,
the resources which you provide
and the trust which you inspire,
people may learn to live full lives
through the power of your Spirit.
In Christ's name we pray. Amen.
