How to Receive Communion

One of the ways we can protect ourselves (and also receive healing) is by taking a communion. We encourage you to take communion either by yourself or with your family. You can do this every morning—reminding yourself what Jesus paid for and tell the devil that he’s defeated once and for all. 

Proclamation Before the Breaking of the Bread: “Father God, in the Name of Jesus, we recognize that we have a covenant with You—a covenant that was ratified by the shed blood of Jesus at Calvary. “Because of the fact that Jesus’ body was broken for us, that His blood was shed in our behalf, we acknowledge that He bore sin, sickness, disease, sorrow, grief, fear, torment, unforgiveness, strife and lack for us. Through His substitutionary sacrifice, we have complete redemption, total deliverance from the works of Satan. “As new creations in Christ Jesus, we realize our freedom has been bought and paid for. We are forgiven. We are redeemed. And we give thanks for it all, in Jesus’ Name.” 

Break the Bread and Distribute It

Judge and Examine Yourselves in the Light of God’s Word: “Father, in the Name of Jesus, we examine our own hearts, we judge ourselves according to the authority of Your Word. “In areas where we have missed the mark (strife, unforgiveness, jealousy, envy, hatred, covetousness, fear, worry, unbelief, etc.), we take Jesus as our Advocate and High Priest. We ask forgiveness according to the Word of God (1 John 1:9). Your Word says You are faithful and just to forgive us when we confess our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. “Therefore, we do not eat of the bread nor drink of the cup unworthily, but we rightly discern the Lord’s body. We receive Communion together now as the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. We are free from the works of Satan—spirit, soul and body.” Then say this: “The Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me” (1 Corinthians 11:23-24). 

Partake of the Bread Together

Then say this: “After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show the Lord’s death till he come.” 

Partake of the Cup Together

Now Join Hands and Make This Confession:“Father, we give You thanks for all You have provided for us in Christ Jesus. We confess this day we are the blessed of the Lord. This covenant we entered into at the new birth is a covenant filled with the exceeding great and precious promises of God, and we are partakers of those promises now! “We are healed. We are redeemed. We are delivered from the authority of darkness. We are translated into the kingdom of God’s dear Son. We are the head and not the tail. We are above and not beneath. We come behind in no good thing. All that we set our hands to prospers, and we praise You, Father, for the newness of life we now enjoy. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
