First lady Melania Trump was a sight to behold during the White House’s National Day of Prayer Service on Thursday. She joined husband, President Donald Trump, as they hosted leaders from different religions at the Rose Garden.


Melania Trump looked classy and ready to face the warm spring weather as she walked out of the White House and into the Rose Garden holding her husband’s hand.


She donned a gorgeous $2000 sleeveless green dress from designer Emilia Wickstead, which cinched at her waist with a thin belt. She completed the look with a pair of floral-patterned heels and a few diamond accessories.

Melania took to Twitter to share a few pics from the event, and celebrated the country as one where “we cherish the freedom of religion.”

“@POTUS and I welcomed many influencers of faith in observance and celebration of the #NationalDayofPrayer to the @WhiteHouse today. God Bless this great nation where we cherish the freedom of religion,” read her caption.


The National Day of Prayer is held on the first Thursday of May every year, where people of all faiths are encouraged to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman.

On the event, Mrs. Trump took the mic to give a warm welcome to the guests, offering a short prayer and then introducing her husband to the crowd.


During his speech, President Trump took the chance to send a prayer for the people of Venezuela "in their righteous struggle for freedom," and also reflected on the recent attacks that several currents of faith have suffered in the past year.

He mentioned the devastating synagogue shooting in California, Sri Lanka’s Easter bombing attacks, and last year’s synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh.

“In recent months, it's been pretty tough. We've seen evil and hate-filled attacks on religious communities in the United States and all around the world," Trump said. And continued:

"One month ago, three historically black churches were burned tragically in Louisiana. In Sri Lanka and New Zealand, hundreds of Christians and Muslims were brutally murdered at their places of worship. In October, an anti-Semitic killer attacked the Tree of Life synagogue.”


Trump welcomed several members of the congregation of California's Poway synagogue, including Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, whose fingers were shot off during the Chabad of Poway shooting. In his speech, the Rabbi called Trump a "mensch par excellence" and thanked him for his kind words.


The president also vowed to “defeat anti-Semitism,” and added:

“As we unite on this day of prayer, we renew our resolve to protect communities of faith and ensure that all people and all of our people can live, pray and worship in peace.”

The outdoor ceremony comes a day after the First Lady shared pics from the White House's renovated bowling alley, earning backlash from people on social media.
