healing & communion
This has been on my heart off and on for a while and I cannot find an answer I trust after a google search, but I'd really value your imput.
We've never been to a communion service where whoever is leading it hasn't said that if anyone needs prayer for healing, to go up after communion as there is a special healing blessing attched to communion. They usually quote from Isaiah 53 "by His stripes we are healed" etc. Can you tell me if there really is a scriptural basis for healing and communion. We can't find one, but know if it's there, you'll know. Blessing and thanks.

By Jesus' crucifixion ordeal (stripes and all) our sins are paid for and we are spiritually healed, and ultimately physically healed at the rapture.

Thanks Buzzardhut, that's how we've always understood the Isaiah 53 verse, so there isn't any scriptural basis then for the claims that communion itself, has a special healing blessing attached to it?
