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.
