About 50 pastors and worship leaders prayed over President Trump in the Oval Office after being invited to the White House last week.

One attendee, a Bethel Music worship leader, described the experience to Fox News:

"All 50 of us crammed into the Oval Office. He sat at his desk and he said pray for me. We just laid our hands on him and prayed for him. It was like a real intense, hardcore prayer. It was so wild. I could not believe he invited us in. That he carved out time to meet with us."

The event, led by White House Faith and Opportunity Initiative Adviser Paula White-Cain, also featured appearances by Vice President Mike Pence and Ivanka Trump, senior White House aide and Trump's daughter.

Christian musicians like Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes also attended.

Pence, in a tweet following the occasion, described it as "wonderful" and touted America as "a proud nation of believers."
