The Bright Spot

The Bright Spot was created to be an online safe haven for you … a place where we can meet together on a daily basis and receive encouragement – from inspiring Scripture, from illuminating quotes, from anointed poetry, and from each other’s words – that we need as we do the good work of praying for our nation and its leaders.

Make it a habit worth keeping – and visit daily The Bright Spot, given to you in gratitude for your partnership with The Presidential Prayer Team. We’re glad you’re here!

Hebrews 10:25 exhorts, “Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”

The Prescription for Racial Reconciliation

Baltimore Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson has taken on the topic of the American racial divide in his new book, Under Our Skin. More importantly, he’s pointed out the path to reconciliation.

The athlete explained that racial issues have been around since the country's inception and said that generation after generation has had to deal with the issue.

"As believers, we have this book called the Bible that we need to filter all of these ideas through," said Watson.

He added that, as Christians, everyone must approach race through the scope of what Scripture says. During a time when some would rather pit people against each other and promoting "hate" and "separatism," Watson hopes those who follow Jesus would look to the Word of God and not the patterns of society.

"The Bible is our prescription on how we do that," he said.

"We are the same under our skin. Our skin, especially in the context of America, our skin has been a great dividing factor and it's something that has been used to make some people inferior and others superior. But the Gospel makes everything leveled at the foot of the cross," Watson emphasized.

  1. I agree that as Christians we are held to a higher standard and must look at the world through God’s prism. We must show our love and not discriminate and hate. Oftentimes we take on issues and do not wait on the Lord nor ask ourselves, “What would Jesus do”. We must not use the Bible as long ago slaveholders did to justify slavery, instead use it to help others learn about the true freedom in the Lord by our actions. We must not live by negatives, but live in and by joy. I pray that one day all of the Christians in our nation will simultaneously ask the Lord for the forgiveness of the sins of our nation and dedicate ourselves to bringing God’s Words, Peace, Joy, Love, Compassion and Strength to others.

Thanks for your leadership in leading believers to pray for our nation.  The daily devotions are so beneficial to me.  I also appreciate the new BOLD program.  It is a great help to me.  May God continue to bless you in these troubled times for our troubled nation. – Cherry, Georgia

It is my joy to be a part of the Presidential Prayer Team.  My interest is also in  the   BOLD We PRAY for AMERICA. - Kitty

How I love the daily devotionals which I receive from your organization.  - Donna

I think your idea of praying for one individual person per day (BOLD) in the government is such a good idea.  I praise God that there is an organization such as yours in America – Eileen

You're really providing a great guide - keep it up! – Cathleen

I receive the devotionals each day and am inspired by them and would like our small congregation to be able to access the fine material... Thanks so much, and may GOD richly bless you and those who provide such quality materials. – Pastor Rick, Florida

Thank you for your daily devotionals.  We appreciate being able to begin each morning with them!

Thank you for your wonderful ministry. - Jan

I began a prayer vigil yesterday evening for our nation, it is so wonderful to receive updates and names to pray for. God bless all of you for your hard work and constant efforts in prayer. – Joy

I have been a member of PPT since President Bush was in office and when PPT was born.  I miss your devotions and am anxious to start receiving them again at my new email address. God Bless you for all you do for America and our troops.   –Jeanette, Nashville

I appreciate Presidential Prayer Team. – Rosemarie

I look forward to the weekly presidential prayer team updates. – Alene

Thank you for your faithful ministry and for allowing me to be a part of it.  I can no longer contribute financially, but will continue to pray for you and the needs as long as I am able.  I believe that prayer changes things, and that if we had continued to be a praying nation we would not be in the situation we are in.  I pray daily for our country to restore God to His rightful place--we seem to have mislaid Him somewhere along the way.  I am 81 years old, and I would never have believed to see the things I see happening.  It grieves me deeply, and I know it grieves the heart of a Holy God.  But your prayer ministry must make Him smile. Thanks again, and keep the Light shining... Dr. Joan

I have grown to appreciate you dear folks more and more.  Your devotionals and scripture provided are a blessing.  I really appreciate your news report and the Washington officials identified.  I have long been conflicted that I should obey the scriptural admonition to pray for our national leaders.  You have helped me be more specific in my prayers.  Thank you for calling the Christians of this nation to prayer. Mrs. H, Texas
