The Lord's Prayer

Blessing We praise you, Lord Jesus Christ, for the faith of your apostle Andrew, who as soon as he heard your calling, left aside the nets which were his livelihood and without hesitation, went to follow you. May we also be ever ready to leave our worldly cares behind, and promptly follow you at all times. Bless the food and drink of your servants as you blessed many times that of your apostles, for you alone are all holy unto ages of ages. Amen.
