The Name of God in the Divine Services: Prayer of Sanctification of St. Serapion, Bishop of Thmuis.

We bless these substances through the Name of thine Only-begotten, Jesus Christ; we pronounce over this water (or oil) the Name of Him Who suffered, Who was crucified and arose and sitteth at the right hand of the Unbegotten... may the participation in these substances be medicine for healing, a medicine of complete health, in the Name of Thine Only-begotten, Jesus Christ, through Whom unto Thee is the glory and dominion in the Holy Spirit throughout the ages of ages. Amen
