In the manifestation of Thy great love for us, O Lord, we come to ask that Thou provideth also for the needy and poor even though our own share be diminished. Let not our faith in Thee be shaken, as from this we gain the greatest benefits. Accept our thanks for this food and save us for Christ’s sake. Amen.
