O Lord Jesus Christ, the heavenly Bread, the bountiful provider of the everlasting food, the giver of good things, who through thy prophet Elias didst grant a source of uncultivated nourishment, the hope of the hopeless, the help of the helpless and the Saviour of our souls.

Do Thou bless these gifts, and those that have offered them to Thee, unto Thy glory and in honour of Thy holy and glorious Greatmartyr Phanourius.

Grant, O Good One, unto them that have prepared these cakes, all Thy worldly and heavenly blessings. Make them to rejoice with gladness before Thy countenance, show unto them the ways unto salvation. Hastily fulfil the  petitions of their hearts and their every desire, guide them unto the fulfilling of Thy commandments, that for evermore in gladness and joy they may hymn and glorify Thy most honourable and majestic Name, by the prayers of the Most blessed Mother of God, of the holy and glorious Greatmartyr Phanourius the Wonder-worker and of all Thy saints. Amen.
