Lord God, Creator and Preserver of all things, in whose hand is the vital principle of every living being and the spirit
of all flesh, hear we beseech Thee, the prayers
of those who believe in Thee. Pour out Thy blessing
on this salt

one when they eat of this salt
(feed, fodder). Through Christ
our Lord. Amen.
