Freedom Tools Second Edition by Andy Reese and introducing Jennifer Barnett

Expanded and updated with lots of new material (we have learned a few things) plus a whole new section on how to start and expand a Freedom Prayer ministry within your church and community. It has been recast and rewritten to better match its use in more traditional churches while losing none of its powerful tools and stories. We are appreciative of Max Lucado, Bill Johnson Dr. Steve Mory, Dr. Neil T. Anderson and many other pastors and counselors for their strong support of this new effort.

"...you will find this book a refreshing and corrective contribution to the much-needed ministry of pastoral care."

    Neil T. Anderson, Freedom in Christ Ministries

"Freedom Tools provides a way to help you travel light by unpacking those bags (heavy loads) and leaving them behind."

   Rich Stearns, President World Vision US

"This book is sure to bring healing to the church. It is both practical and profound." 
  Bill Johnson,
pastor Bethel Church Redding, CA

"Extremely instructive and practical." 

   Max Lucado, pastor and author

"A ministry like Freedom Prayer is the best place to start. I am most impressed with the team at Freedom Resource."

  Dr. Steve Mory, clinical psychiatrist and assistant professor of psychiatry at Vanderbilt University.

"Freedom Prayer is solidly based on the Gospel and biblical teaching while being immensely practical. Like few tools it has helped our leaders walk in increased freedom."

  David McQueen, senior pastor Beltway Park Baptist church, Abilene, TX

"Finally a good, simple and gentle approach. I encourage you to Freedom Prayer and partner with God to bring people to a place of freedom in Christ."

  Mike Swecker, past pastor of prayer and freedom ministries Hosanna! Church (Lutheran), Lakeville, MN

"Piercing insights and keen discernment to empower the reader to be set free at last."

   James Goll, author and speaker

"One of the sharpest tools in our toolbox."

    Brad Bowen, senior pastor, Heritage Church, Moultrie, GA



Welcome to

The Freedom Resource

The Freedom Resource works to support and facilitate a biblically based approach to freedom we call Freedom Prayer that is spreading among hundreds of churches and individuals. It borrows the best from many sources, adds new understandings, and fits them into a framework that is balanced and effective. We offer downloadable materials, links, training, and more.

We are all volunteers, normal people, friends, and family – just like you. That is the beauty of Freedom Prayer, it is simple, and it is for us – all of us.

Since we began well over a decade and a half ago the web site www.thefreedomresource.org has had over 200,000 hits, thousands have purchased Freedom Tools, and thousands more have downloaded materials.

Our Focus

The Freedom Resource has found its materials and truths to be applicable and accepted by all "flavors" of Christianity including the more traditional Baptist, Presbyterian, Church of Christ, Catholic, Anglican, Lutheran, Methodist and others. You can see the the endorsers of Freedom Tools span a very wide range of church and mental health professional settings including: author and pastor Max Lucado, the president of World Vision Rich Sterns, inner healing global leader Dr. Neil Anderson, Vanderbilt Assistant Professor of Psychiatry Dr. Steve Mory, many counselors, and Baptist, Lutheran, Charismatic and non-denominational pastors of large successful churches and others. 

The ability to tie this ministry directly to clear biblical truth, to receive the support of mental health professionals, to hear the testimonies of thousands who have been markedly helped by this ministry, and to retain an overall approach and feel with which pastoral staff can feel comfortable is important to us – all without sacrificing the core values of freedom ministry.

It is also important for us for you to know that we are here to support you in your quest to help your flock and friends be more free from sin, entanglements, pain, ungodly beliefs and demonic deception and not to tie your freedom ministry to another church or organization. We are friends and co-laborers not a hierarchy or membership organization.

This structure provides some significant advantages or differences that you may find attractive:

  1. Organization. A loose and voluntary association of friends who share a mutual passion for freedom ministry without the formality of structural membership, hierarchical constraints, branding requirements; and free from perceived associations that may seem less compatible with the local church’s belief and practice.
  2. Support. TFR can support through materials, training, consulting, and friendship with an effective but more generic and strong biblically-based freedom ministry in any denominational and non-denominational setting.
  3. Local Control. A church or other organization can retain more of a sense of ownership of their local ministry because Freedom Prayer can fit your unique circumstances while, hopefully, retaining those key things that make this ministry so successful

We have spent many years fine tuning Freedom Prayer to enhance its effectiveness and safety. We hope you will pay close attention to our ten foundations and our approach. And we hope you will take these things and sue them in a form that will fit your needs well. We stand ready to help.

We invite you to take a long look at this site and our sister site: www.freedomprayer.org and ask as many questions as you like. We are here to serve you.

Is the term "inner healing"
found in the bible?

Nope! But the concept is everywhere - all its facets:
healing the brokenhearted and releasing captives is (Lk 4:18);
confessing sins to another and prayer for them is (Jam 5:16);
casting out demons is (Mk 16:17);
setting up godly defenses is (Eph 6:10);
speaking prophetic encouragement is (1 Th 5:20);
taking thoughts captive is (2 Cor 10:5);
forgiving is (Eph 4:32);
renouncing past sinful practices is (2 Cor 4:2);
being led by the Spirit is (Rom 8:14);
asking God for miraculous input is (Jer 33:3);
bearing one another's burdens is (Gal 6:2);
wanting freedom is (Gal 5:1);
speaking truth to someone is (Eph 4:15);
knowing and saying God is near to the brokenhearted is (Ps 34:18);
comforting the afflicted with what God has shown us is (2 Cor 1:4);
and... well...you get it.
That is what we do in Freedom Prayer.

Did Jesus teach on "inner healing"?

Surprisingly, YES !!

Many pastors and others fairly new to the concept of "inner healing" want to know if it is biblical... even if Jesus did it. That is a great and honest question with good answers. If that's you (or someone you know) then this is for you.

Inner Healing From the Ground Up

We are always asked three important questions, which should be asked, about what is today termed "inner healing":

   (1) is it in the bible?;

   (2) did Jesus do and teach it?; and

   (3) can a Christian "have a demon"?

Click below for a free and brief .pdf discussion
of these three important questions.
