Gratitude for a Revelation

A prayer of gratitude

Heavenly Father,

We come before you with humble hearts, grateful for your blessings. We are thankful for the Urantia Revelation and the opportunity to serve during its initial expansion. We honor the courageous pioneers who labored before us and ask for your guidance in finding more believers and workers for the future.

Thank you to the generous donors who support the publication and dissemination of the book and its teachings. May you be glorified by the work done by Urantia Foundation and all those serving the revelation. Keep our souls selfless and open to the calling of the spiritually hungry and those in need. May we be your worthy ambassadors, helping others transform their lives through the joy of discovering you.

We are grateful for the liberating truths in The Urantia Book, such as your love, universe cosmology, the ascending mortal plan, and the teachings of Jesus. We are thankful for the presence of your Adjusters, the Spirit of Truth, the Holy Spirit, and guardian angels who inspire, guide, and protect us on our daily spiritual journey. We love you and your son Michael.

Thank you for your continued blessings and guidance as we seek to share the transforming teachings of The Urantia Book.

“Science: The Interface of Evolution and Revelation”

The Education Committee of Urantia Foundation plumbed the depths of technology by offering the third Science Symposium online. Zoom Events allowed science-minded students of The Urantia Book to transcend time and space as they gathered to delve into the dual perspectives of current science and revelation. The videos from this symposium and much more can be found in the study section of urantia.org. Click on Seminars & Presentations.

The Mustard Seed Grants Program ~ A Legacy to the Future

Urantia Foundation launched the Mustard Seed Grants Program (MSGP) in November. Endowed by the Mustard Seed Fund, the program awards grants of varying sizes to eligible projects which support the Foundation’s trust and mission to seed The Urantia Book and its teachings globally.

The MSGP encourages students from around the world to develop innovative projects, both large and small, that share the good news of the fifth epochal revelation. Recipients are committed to furthering education and outreach in tangible and measurable ways, and across all regions of the world.

Said Jesus, "The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed which a man sowed in his field. Now a mustard seed is the least of seeds, but when it is full grown, it becomes the greatest of all herbs and is like a tree so that the birds of heaven are able to come and rest in the branches thereof." 151:4.2 (1693.8)
