What did Jesus say to ask the Father to bless the meal?

In the last super, Jesus took the bread and the wine and asked his Father to bless it.

Could not find in the bible.

“The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of Christ?” (1 Corinthians 10:16).

The cup of blessing was part of the Jewish Passover liturgy. When it got to this part of the liturgy, the Jews would give thanks to the Lord (or bless) for the meal. Jesus was celebrating the Passover meal, so this is what He would have done.
