Restoring Hope in the Lives of Families

Our God-given mission at Joe McGee Ministries is to restore hope in the lives of families through the knowledge of God’s Word.

We use every method and avenue we have available to us, including social media to reach people.

Here is a note we received via social media of one woman who had hope restored and recommitted her life to God —

“I saw a clip of Joe McGee on facebook…Joe’s messages on marriage and family were exactly what I needed at the exact right time. I recommitted my life to Christ. I’m more patient and understanding with my children and husband now, among lots of other things. I feel things moving toward the better for us and, although it’s by the grace of God, I have to thank Joe as well!”

How To Get More Unity

Last year, the number one topic our listeners and readers wanted help with was getting more unity in their family.

It affects families, businesses, marriages and the list continues. Unity sounds like a flowery term, but if you don’t have it, relationships can easily turn ugly.

The reason a lack of unity affects relationships is that because it causes conflict. Conflict is most often the result of unmet expectations. When everyone has a different goal or expectation that doesn’t get met, conflicts ensue.

We actually recorded a special message on this topic called, Growing Up Together.

Practical Prayer Tips for Couples


As a couple, the prayer of agreement is a powerful tool.

God highly esteems unity. Jesus said in Matthew 18:19 (ESV), “Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.”  The husband and wife who will take the time to pray together will not only create unity and harmony in their home, but God will work on their behalf to bring their requests to pass.

Here are a few practical tips to help you and your spouse get started praying together.

  1. Make a detailed list of requests that include every area of your home, family, work, etc.
  2. Write major requests on index cards that you can carry with you. Write out at least three scriptures on the back of each card as a reference for your faith.
  3. Be thankful when you pray. Start each prayer with a “thank you, God” attitude.
  4. Be specific when praying, and remember, there is no situation too small or too big that you can’t pray in agreement over,
  5. Keep it short and to the point. Many things don’t require you to pray for hours.
  6. Keep a prayer journal of your requests. As they are answered, date them and check them off the list.
