Freedom Prayer is a personal prayer ministry where individuals can schedule a focused prayer time with members of ClearView’s Freedom Prayer team. The main goal of this prayer ministry is to allow the Holy Spirit to identify and address things hindering a deeper personal relationship with God.
This ministry uses a biblical framework to give the Holy Spirit room to address inner hurts and wounds, identify and break strongholds, and bring healing and freedom, all with the purpose of knowing God better (Ephesians 1:17).
While God can meet us anytime in any way, He’s made a promise that when two or more of us gather in His name, that He blesses us with His presence (Matthew 18:20).
When we wait on Him together, we can confidently expect Him to reveal himself and, as our hearts are tender and open to Him, we can trust He will guide us into truth (John 16:13).

Freedom Prayer is simply the name of a specific ministry at ClearView Baptist Church that aims to help people find freedom from barriers that may keep them from experiencing joy and peace in Christ. Freedom Prayer is a personal prayer ministry that exists to help with the process of recognizing and resolving anything that would keep us from an abiding relationship with God. It is a “first responder” ministry, focused on equipping individuals to prayerfully examine with God fundamental emotional and spiritual needs that hinder their Christian walk. Wounding, sin, ungodly beliefs and entanglements can create strongholds that cause continual struggle with God and others. Freedom Prayer exists to provide solid biblical reconciliation and restoration, that promotes a healthy prayer life and disciples individuals into a whole and abiding relationship with God. Traditionally, these prayer times occur in small groups of three people within a church team framework.
The promises and principles found in God’s Word are the basis for all effective prayer ministry. The ClearView staff are committed to ministering in a way that is solidly biblical. If we don’t find it in the Bible, we don’t do it. This strong biblical grounding gives the Holy Spirit room to do what only he can do. We seek to be humble before the Lord and to honor the people who come for ministry. We also maintain a strong system of accountability and confidentiality. To the glory of God, hundreds of people have been encouraged, strengthened and drawn closer to Christ through Freedom Prayer. The Scriptures that form the biblical framework for our ministry can be found near the bottom of this page.
Yes, everything that is said and done is held in the strictest of confidentiality. However, the information, as needed, may be shared with other leaders in the prayer team so as to help you continue in the freedom you have gained. With your permission, this may include future meetings with pastors or mentors in our church to set appropriate boundaries for your personal and spiritual growth.
Furthermore, if there appears to be personal danger to you or to someone else that is discussed during the prayer time, the prayer team may be obliged to share information for your safety or the safety of others.
It is our goal that everyone who receives prayer is in a discipleship relationship and walking in close community with the body of Christ. At ClearView, this ideally means that you are in a small group and in close relationship with people that can continue to walk with you in growing freedom and accountability.
While prayer sessions can be powerful times of personal ministry, new found freedom will be difficult to maintain and grow if we are not walking in close Christian community. If you are not in community with other Christian believers, it will be our goal to help you establish these relationships.
A Freedom Prayer session is not a one-and-done type of thing. You are welcome to schedule another prayer time to continue walking in freedom — whether it’s for the same subject you addressed in your first prayer time or something completely different. We believe seeking the Lord, removing those barriers, and pursuing our spiritual freedom is a lifestyle, not a one time thing.
Prayer is open to anyone who desires to meet for prayer whether you are member of ClearView Baptist Church or not. However, our goal is that everyone who comes to pray will be a part of true Christian community.
Biblical Framework for ClearView’s Freedom Prayer Ministry
Be still and know that I am God. – Psalm 46:10
The Bible is replete with Scriptures exhorting us to wait on the Lord and meditate on his Word.
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. – Ephesians 3:16-19
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son
cleanses us from all sin. – 1 John 1:7-8
But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God. – Galatians 4:4-7
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. – Psalm 147:3
