F.A.R. or “Far Above Rubies” women”s prayer teaches women how to walk in their worth by being the intercessors God created us to be. Our vision is to transform, restore, and lead women to a place of healing by building an intimate prayer life and relationship with Jesus! Proverbs 31:10 says “a wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Our foundational scripture, these words paint the picture of how a Godly woman behaves. Our mission is that every woman embrace the power Christ has given her. Our goal in F.A.R. Is for each woman to discover her unique gift of intercession through an intimate prayer life with Jesus.
The JMGC “Far above Rubies Women’s Ministry” is issuing a strong clarion call to all the magnificent women of God, who believes in the power of prayer and fasting. Come one! Come all! We welcome women of all ages, including teens and children, to participate in our bi-monthly intercessory prayer and outreach ministry, which takes place the first and third Saturdays of each month, at 10:30 am at J.M.G.C. The Far Above Rubies Women’s ministry reflects the great value God Himself, has place upon His beautiful prayer queens. Our commitment to prayer and intercession has brought us into our new season of blessings, increase, restoration and total recovery.
Far Above Rubies Women’s Prayer was birthed in 2012 by Pastor Phuong Hepburn. Pastor Hepburn was born in Vietnam and came from a Buddhist background. When she came into a relationship with Christ, prayer was a challenge for her, and that is how Far Above Rubies Women’s Prayer was born. Although the attendance was small in the beginning the prayers of the few always resulted God showing up in a powerful way. As word spread the attendance, the intercession and the women grew! Women, families and things brought in prayer to God were transformed, hearts healed, and expectations elevated. Women and the families that attended have bore fruit after years of praying and some became business owners, students, wives, preachers, teachers, ordained ministers and pastors in addition all of the personal, academic and spiritual growth that was in secret. Every woman who attended grew in prayer and her thirst to please God and with seeking God all things were added into them.
Many F.A.R. women confess trust in God flows out of their experience of God’s tangible love, day in and day out, whether the day is stormy or fair, whether sick or in good health, whether in a state of grace or disgrace; His unconditional unchanging love has made them trust Him to never leave. He comes to us in whatever place we are and loves us, even as He loved the prodigal son back to Him. Far Above Rubies is a women’s prayer group but we stand in the gap for countries, nations, our families, our churches, our government and our enemies so that we can be vessels to pray the will of God -that none should perish but all come to repentance.
We are women who have found that, in Christ we are more than looks, more than knowledge, we are women who seek to please God and that makes us worth far more than rubies.
