P: Our help is in the name of the Lord.
All: Who made heaven and earth.
P: The Lord be with you.
All: May He also be with you.
Let us pray.
Almighty everlasting God, who in punishment for sin declared to man: “In the sweat of your brow you shall eat your bread”; bestow your blessing on this mill which has been built to produce flour, and thus supply bread for our nourishment. May it please you to appoint your angel of light to stand watch over it; through Christ our Lord. All: Amen.
It is sprinkled with holy water.
