In the Orthodox Missal, one of the Prayers Before Mass (the "Declaration of Intention") says:

I intend to assist at this celebration of the Holy Sacrifice (and to offer this Communion) for the praise of Almighty God, and of the whole Church triumphant; for my own benefit; for the benefit of the whole Church militant and expectant; for all in general who have commended themselves to my prayers; and in particular for...and I pray that God may grant all those things which I now purpose for His glory, and which are according to His holy will.
