Daily Devotionals Live on Facebook
There is no doubt this is an incredibly difficult time for almost every person in the world. Anxiety is at an all-time high while so much of the future is uncertain. The truth is that it’s possible to experience the peace of God, even when facing hardship. At the Oaks, we get better together, that’s why every morning starting March 30th, Pastor Scott Wilson and Pastor Chris Railey will meet you on Facebook Live to share God’s love and truth from the book of James. The book of James is incredibly prophetic for this time and teaches us that as we face our suffering, we can choose total trust in the Father over anxiety… wisdom we have needed like never before.
Tune in live every morning at 8am or click above to watch previous devotions.

Guided Prayer Videos
Pastor Scott believes that prayer is more “caught than taught.” He wanted to provide you with a way to “catch” the practice of prayer like he caught from his dad growing up, so he decided to record these three Guided Prayer videos based on The Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6:9-13. Listen and pray along with these timed guided prayers based on your prayer ladder level. You can also follow along with written versions of the guided prayers here:
Written Guided Prayer | 5 – 10 minutes
Written Guided Prayer | 30 – 60 minutes
