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
(feed, fodder) and fill it with the benefits of Thy invisible power; grant that these animals which Thou hast graciously destined for man's needs may be freed of all disease and protected from the attacks of the evil
one when they eat of this salt
(feed, fodder). Through Christ
our Lord. Amen.
