The Priest recites the Communion troparia:

O Son of God, receive me today as a partaker of Your mystic Supper, for I shall not betray Your mysteries to Your enemies, nor will I give You a kiss as did Judas, but with the thief I will confess You, "Remember me, O Lord, when You come into Your Kingdom."

When the Confession of the sick one has been heard, Absolution given, the Priest prepares for the Partaking, Spreading the Paten under the chin of the sick one, the Priest gives to him (her) the Holy Mysteries, saying:

The servant of God (Name) partakes of the Precious and All; Holy Body and Blood of our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ unto the remission of sins and everlasting Life.

Priest

O God, our help in time of need, Who are just and merciful, and Who inclines to the supplications of His people;

Look down upon us, miserable sinners, have mercy on us, and deliver us from the trouble that now besets us, for which we acknowledge we are deservedly suffering.

We acknowledge and believe, O Lord, that all the trials of this life are disposed by You for our chastisement, when we drift away from You, and disobey Your commandments;

Deal with us not according to our iniquities, but according to Your manifold mercies, for we are the works of Your hands, and You know our weaknesses:

Grant, we beseech You, Your divine helping Grace, and endow us with patience and strength to endure our tribulations with complete submission to Your Will;

You know our misery and sufferings, and to You, our only hope and refuge, we flee for relief and comfort, trusting in Your infinite love and compassion, that in due time,

When You know best, You will deliver us from this trouble, and turn our distress into comfort,

When we shall rejoice in Your mercy, and exalt and praise Your Holy Name (+) O Father, Son and Holy Spirit; both now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.
