Summary

Imprisoned in the Tower of London by Queen “Bloody” Mary Tudor, John Bradford continued to live out his faith in spite of everything. He would frequently preach to his fellow inmates, and spend the rest of his time praying, studying, and writing. Among his writings was Godly Meditations upon the Lord’s Prayer, in which he explores in depth a person’s relationship with God in the present and eternity through the lens of the Lord’s Prayer. Considering his own situation of religious persecution, his thoughts on forgiveness, suffering, and death have encouraged readers throughout the years.

Basic information: John Bradford (1510–1555) was a prebendary of St. Paul's. He was an English Reformer and martyr best remembered for his utterance "'There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford". These words were uttered by Bradford while imprisoned in the Tower of London when he saw a criminal on his way to execution; however, the attribution has been questioned. Bradford was in the Tower of London for alleged crimes against Mary Tudor for his Protestant faith.
