Bright Spot

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 Bright Spot” was created to be an online safe haven for you and all members of The Presidential Prayer Team…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!

Boston Marathon

BrightSpotAmerican Christian Wins Boston Marathon

Mebrahtom "Meb" Keflezighi, the first man among more than 35,000 runners competing in Monday’s Boston Marathon to cross the finish line, was also being celebrated because he is the first American to claim the top spot in more than 30 years.

The Olympic medalist, who believes God called him to run, completed the 26.2-mile race ahead of other male competitors in 2 hours, 8 minutes and 37 seconds.

Keflezighi, who has in his Twitter bio the Bible passage Philippians 4:13 ("I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me!"), escaped war-torn Eritrea with his family in 1987 and emigrated to San Diego, which is where he first became interested in running. He became an American citizen while in high school.

He told the Wall Street Journal in 2009, after his New York City Marathon win, that what helped him recover from a near career-ending injury was intensive therapy, "hard work" and "hard prayer."

Keflezighi, "like his parents, is a deeply religious Christian," the paper reported. "Though his training schedule doesn’t always allow him to make it to church every Sunday, he makes time for prayer “every day before I go to sleep and every day before I get up.’"

The 38-year-old athlete has said of himself, "My God-given talent was discovering when I could run 5:20. Not everyone can run 5:20. … I was definitely gifted, but I have to work hard."

Keflezighi, whose first name reportedly means "let there be light," shares his testimony in the 2010 book “Run to Overcome: The Inspiring Story of an American Champion’s Long-Distance Quest to Achieve a Big Dream.”

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 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
