communion and healing

Updated: Apr 2, 2023

Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing, it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, "Take, eat; this is my body." And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, "Drink of it, all of you, for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

Matthew 26:26-28 (ESV)

Christians have differing views about the purpose and meaning of communion. Each denomination has different traditions regarding it. For me, communion is something precious, and I take it often for different reasons. I love to take it with my family when we get together in gratitude for God's blessings and as a reminder of Christ's death, resurrection, and His second coming. I also take it when I need healing.

Many years ago, God gave me a revelation of His healing power through communion. My mother had just had a stroke that affected her speech. It left her completely mute. The doctors were happy that her speech was the only area the stroke affected, but the people who knew mom knew that for her, the loss of her speech was worse than the loss of movement.

The doctors told us that the damage was permanent and that she would never speak again, but the Holy Spirit had other plans for mom. I cannot tell you why, but I felt she needed to take communion daily until her speech was restored. My brothers and I decided that one of us would visit mom daily to share communion and pray with her for healing. To the glory of God and her doctor's surprise, mom started to speak at the end of the 45th day of doing that!

She still has issues pronouncing a few words, but the joke around our family is that the problem now is that she never stops talking. Since then, I have used communion as a point of faith for healing, and through it, I have seen many miracles in my family and in the lives of members of some of the congregations where I have preached.

During their last supper, Christ told His disciples to take the bread as a symbol of His body. The Bible tells us that we are healed by the wounds of Christ (Isaiah 53:5 ). The bread we break during communion represents those wounds, which are the price for our healing. When we take communion, we are doing more than remembering Chris's sacrifice. We also declare our faith in God to heal our bodies and forgive our sins.

Communion is not just something we should take once a month at church. It is a testimony to the world that because we are in Christ, God's promises to us are yes and amen. If you have been standing in faith for healing for a while and that healing has not come yet, take communion. It will boost your faith, and it can also release the healing power of God.
