About the author:
John T. Mudd was a man of many talents. Rarely would a week pass that he didn't have some new idea to share with you. He was creative, intelligent, generous and kind with an infectious smile and laugh.
He was the founder of an exquisite line of candles and botanicals called "True" by Joseph Thomas.
John's prayers tell much about him, who he was and what he believed in. You will be taken aback by the depth and beauty of his words. His prayers for peace are not just about the war, but about peace in our daily lives. In his humble relationship with God, he prays for an end to racial oppression, an end to prejudices, for the lonely, the abused, the wealthy, the poor, for the leaders of our society, for newborns, teens, parents, soldiers and our enemies. He prays not only for those who are suffering with illness, but for the caregivers and family members who love them. He asks not to be judged by our weaknesses, but by the love we have for others. He asks God to bring peace to those who are unable to forgive. He reminds us to be aware that we are here for today only. In a moment our lives may change. In one prayer, John says, "May I live until I die," and he did. His life was lived to the fullest.
John's Gift of Peace
John T. Mudd
A collection of prayers with a common theme of peace authored by the Holy Spirit through John T. Mudd
These prayers of peace are not just about world peace, but about peace in our daily lives. Here is an excerpt:
All that I Am
Dear God, please allow me to use the blessings that You have bestowed upon me to see the goodness that surrounds me. May I use my ears to hear the words of peace and love that are spoken daily. May I use my eyes to see the work that others do to bring about justice and peace. May I use my mind to think positively of the world that You have lovingly created for me. May I use my hands to reach for those less fortunate. May I use my feet to travel on the path that You have laid before me. Finally, please allow me to use my heart to experience and share the love that only You allow. I ask this in Your name. Amen.
After the September 11th attacks on the United States, John Mudd wanted to do his part for the country and the world. He developed a website called, Pray for Peace, that reached everyone via email. Two prayers were sent out daily and were translated in the languages of more than one hundred countries. Everyone receiving his email was praying for peace. His intent was to have millions of voices reaching to God.
Eventually, John put his best works in a book entitled, "Gift of Peace." Shortly after making this book available, John died tragically in a house fire. The fire consumed most of John's worldly belongings and our family was left with little to hold on to. This collection of prayers brought us much comfort and we would now like to share them with you. We have added a few more of his prayers to his original works that we found since his passing as well as the story detailing the tragic loss of a child (two in fact) written by John's mom. Thank you for letting us share his "Gift of Peace."
