Understanding the Mystery (μυστήριον – mystērion)

Jesus, explaining the parable of the seed sower to His recently selected twelve, told them (in the fourth chapter of Mark), “To you it has been given to know the “μυστήριον” -or- “mystērion” of the Kingdom of God; but to those who are outside, all things come in parables…”

Precious Redeemer,

It is the great desire of our hearts to be counted as those to whom it has been given to understand the mystery (the hidden things, the secret things) of the kingdom of God.  We don’t presume to be worthy of this, but through faith in the powerful, redeeming work You did, we ask that you reveal the mystērion to us.

Amen
