I ordered the prepackaged wafers and grape juice that a lot of churches use — you can get them in counts of 6, 100, 250, or 500 on Amazon.

Here is the prayer from Prince for the bread (body):
“Dear Lord Jesus, we come to You, and we remember all that You have done for us on the cross. Thank You for loving us so much You gave up heaven for us. Thank You for allowing Your body to be broken so that ours might be whole. As we partake, we receive Your resurrection life, health, and strength. By Your grace, we shall be completely strong and healthy all the days of our lives. Our eyes shall not grow dim, nor shall our strength be abated. No sickness can remain in our bodies because the same power that raised You from the grave flows through us. By Your stripes, we are healed.”
Here is the prayer from Prince for the juice (blood):
“Lord Jesus, thank You for Your precious blood. Thank You for washing us clean of all our sins. We stand before You completely righteous and forgiven. Your blood has redeemed us from every curse, and today we can freely receive all the blessings that crown the head of the righteous!”
Below is my interview with Pastor Joseph Prince from when he spoke at Madison Square Garden in NYC:
Why Pastor Joseph Prince takes communion daily — and his ‘simple’ message for America
Joseph Prince, a Singapore-based megachurch pastor who has been called a missionary to America and is credited with starting a “Gospel of Grace Revolution,” is touring the United States with a “simple” message for the nation. He’s sharing about the power of the Holy Communion, something he talks about in his latest book.
The senior pastor of New Creation Church talked to Fox News after the first stop on his U.S. tour of worship nights in New York City before his event in Washington, D.C., where he was invited to the White House to meet with Vice President Mike Pence and pray over him.

“I feel what America needs is to return back to the gospel of grace,” Prince said after his sold-out event at Madison Square Garden. “I hear a lot of preaching…that emphasizes you, not what God has done,” which he calls “the biggest heresy” today.
“The gospel is all about grace. Grace is not a teaching, it is a person of Jesus,” Prince added. “It’s actually the gospel.”

He says a lot of pastors and teachers today point their fingers at what they’re against, robbing believers of the good news. And for the New York Times best-selling author, whose new book is called “Eat Your Way to Life and Health: Unlock the power of the Holy Communion,” it’s something he learned himself, which he calls a “neglected but very powerful truth.”
Before he became a megapastor who grew his church to more than 33,000 attendees, Prince was a young believer who didn’t dare take communion because he was afraid he was unworthy. But now it’s something he says he does daily after “the Lord opened my eyes to how he has made it so easy for any of us to receive the divine health that our Lord Jesus paid for us to enjoy.”
“I believe that the Lord gave me a mission to teach on the health-giving, life-imparting, healing power of the Communion,” Prince said, explaining on why he wrote the book about a sacrament that some believers only partake of once a week or once a month, if at all. “I want them to know beyond a shadow of any doubt that God wants them healed, whole and well.”
Prince calls Communion the “proverbial ‘fountain of youth’ mankind has been in search of for generations” and “is more powerful than any medicine, antibiotic, or medical procedure.” He believes it can be the difference between life and death. He shares testimonies of people throughout the book who have been healed by the power of Holy Communion.
And Prince says he witnessed the power of Communion while writing his book. His six-year-old son, Justin, had two skull fractures and was bleeding and throwing up after he fell from a high place on the playground during recess. When the doctors said all they could give him was painkillers, Prince and his wife, Wendy, partook communion with their second-grader at the hospital.
“The amazing this was, we could literally see him getting better and better each time we partook,” Prince said. “Every time we had Communion with Justin, his headaches got less painful, to the point when he told us he would rather just partake of the Communion that to take the painkillers that the doctors had given him!”
Instead of taking six weeks to recover, as the doctors predicted, Justin was given the all-clear to return to school in just three weeks. “All glory to Jesus!” Prince said.
He encourages anyone who hasn’t been healed or seen any changes to keep going – and believing.
“Don’t give up. No matter what diagnosis you might have received from your doctor, keep filling your heart with scriptures,” Prince said. “Keep listening to messages about the Lord’s finished work and partaking of the Communion.”
Prince said his faith in Jesus means everything and it’s “not based on any legalistic human tradition but founded upon an intimate and meaningful relationship with my loving Savior.”
It’s how he believes he went from a little-known pastor in Singapore to a worldwide phenomenon in the faith community.
“My ministry is all about exalting the name of Jesus and proclaiming the Gospel of Grace,” Prince concluded, adding, “My desire is for this generation to discover that the power to reign over every sin, bondage, and addiction comes from receiving not just grace, but the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness!”
