Thursday's Prayer

This is an interesting one, as it comes from the earliest known text of a Eucharistic Prayer.  It is so early that Christians were still, at that point, considered to be Jews:

Blessed be the Lord, King of the Universe, who created All things, apportioned food, appointed drink
For all the children of flesh with which they shall be satisfied
But granted to us, human beings, to partake of the food
Of the myriads of his angelic bodies. For all this
We have to bless with songs in the gatherings of [the] people
