The Power of Communion: Receiving the Favor of God
Pastor Gregory M. Dickow
The favor of God…it’s an amazing power that’s available to God’s children…yet sadly, it is a power that too many of us live without. Now it’s important to understand that the favor of God does not mean that your life is Dear Friend,
never going to be unfair. What the favor of God does mean is that when life is unfair, God is going to turn the situation around and what has been unfair is going to turn to your advantage.
The favor of God means that when you are at a disadvantage, God is going to give you the advantage. When you are on the brink of defeat and failure, favor means that God is going to turn it around and give you the victory…God’s favor means that He is going to give you success! If you are like me, you need some of that supernatural favor in your life!
Knowing what God’s favor is leaves us with one big question—how can we enjoy His favor on our lives? I’m glad that God doesn’t leave us hanging…He gives us the clear answer in His Word.
Acts 2 tells us the story of the early Church, what they did and how God blessed them. Acts 2:47 says they had favor
with God. That’s what we want. So how did they get it? They “continued daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house.” That’s not talking about eating a meal, it’s talking about communion.
Now maybe you weren’t raised to think of communion this way. But what God is saying here is that when you drink the cup and take the bread, you are pouring His favor and blessing into your life! Let me share some exciting stories of what has happened for people who heard this teaching on the subject of communion and decided to put it into practice in their lives.
My foot was injured over 2 years ago. The tendon was stretched until it was ready to rupture. The doctor wanted to operate. I was in so much pain that I was ready for the doctor to cut or do whatever needed to be done to stop the excruciating pain. I came to church and you led the congregation in receiving communion. After we finished taking communion, I sat down and felt these tingling sensations in my foot. After service, I walked out of the service without any pain! I had suffered excruciating pain for several months, but after taking communion, my foot was healed!
Like many other companies, mine was laying several people off. However, my husband and I sowed seeds and took communion for divine favor for my job. In the midst of the layoffs, I received a promotion! I also received that same week a monetary award from my boss.
Communion Released Favor in My Situation & Everything Turned Around!
Recently, I was set to close on my first home. My lawyer called me saying I needed to bring $5000 to pay for closing costs. I was shocked because I wasn’t expecting to pay this much. I told him I didn’t have $5000. He responded that I had to bring this amount to close. After I hung up, I decided to take communion and declared that I would receive favor in the situation. In a short amount of time, my lawyer called me back saying that they somehow worked it out in my favor and all I needed to bring to the closing was $40! By the time I arrived to the closing later that day they had made more adjustments and I was issued a check for the balance that was left over! Thank you for teaching us about the miraculous power of communion, had you not taught me I would not have known how to respond in this situation.
Healed of Migraine Headaches and Epilepsy
Since I was quite young, I’ve been having migraine headaches, and in addition to that, approximately seven years ago, was diagnosed with epilepsy. I would experience a grand mal seizure. There were times that I would have several episodes in a day; and while the episodes were not painful, it was obvious they created a great deal of stress. After listening to your teaching on communion, the exercise of eating and drinking the bread and the juice became more than just a ritual; it was an encounter with God. A couple of things that Pastor Dickow said were, “It’s not the repetition or how often you take communion, but it’s the confidence in it,” and “When we recognize who Christ is, He will tell us who we are.” I took communion with you, and I literally felt a physical sensation in my head. As strange as it sounds, I felt as though my brain was being warmly massaged, and immediately, I knew I had been touched by the Lord. I WAS HEALED! There wasn’t a doubt in my mind that the Lord had touched me and healed me at that very moment. Since that time, I haven’t had so much as a hint of a headache. The migraines are GONE, the seizures are GONE, and my epilepsy medication is GONE.
Cindy Declared Not Guilty
I was going through the emotions of guilt and frustration on a particular sin I committed against God. I prayed and asked God for forgiveness, but I just kept on thinking God had not forgiven me. That evening when I was overwhelmed with all these thoughts, Pastor Dickow's teaching on The Holy Communion came up on TBN and my mum and I broke bread with Pastor Dickow. I can remember at the end, a word came from Pastor Dickow, "the Lord declares you NOT GUILTY," and from that time on, I felt God’s love for me and He totally cleansed me of that sin and its consequences. PRAISE THE LORD!
These are just a few of the hundreds of people we’ve heard from who’ve put this teaching on communion into practice. It works because it is based solely on the promises of God, which always come true. And I want to share the full details of this teaching with you.

Take the first step toward unleashing the power of God’s favor in your life today by learning the power of communion. I encourage you to take communion today over a situation where you don’t feel God has turned to your favor. Then that situation will change because God has a bloodbought oath to show you His favor through His precious body and through His precious blood. I want you to expect it today!
The testimonies I shared with you earlier in this letter are not the experiences of a privileged few…their experience can be yours today! Favor works for anybody. A toaster works for a good person and a bad person. The toaster works because you plug the cord in the electrical outlet and rely on its power, not because of anything special or holy about you.
In the same way, when you plug into the favor of God through the blood and body of Jesus by taking communion, it begins to work for you.
I am so excited to share these truths with you. When you begin to view taking communion in this new way and see God’s favor begin to flow, everything turns around! What has been painful becomes helpful; what has been sadness becomes joyous; what has been dark becomes light; and what has been failure becomes success.
