(CNSNews.com) -- At a White House dinner with Christian evangelicals, Pastor Paula White presented a Bible to President Trump and the first lady that included an inscription, signed by 100 Christian leaders, which thanked him for his defense of religious liberty" and added that "history will record the greatness that you have brought for generations."

In the prayer before dinner, Pastor White also called on Jesus Christ to bless the president, his family, and the administration with Christ's wisdom and to protect the president from any weapon that could be "formed against" him. 

Prior to the start of the dinner on Aug. 27, President Trump spoke to the evangelicals and then invited Pastor Paula White to say the blessing.

Standing next to Trump, Pastor White said, "It’s an honor to be here. And before we pray the prayer, this group would like to present to you and the first lady a Bible that is signed by over a hundred Christians, evangelicals that love you, and pray for you."

"I’d just like to read the inscription for you and first lady," she said.  "It says, ‘First lady and president, you are in our prayers always. Thank you for your courageous and bold stand for religious liberty, and for your timeless service to all Americans. We appreciate the price that you have paid to walk in the high calling. History will record the greatness that you have brought for generations.'”

“We pray this prayer -- If all of you agree with that, say, ‘Amen,'” White then told the crowd of evangelical leaders, which responded with a unanimous “Amen.”

She continued, “Let us pray. May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make his face shine upon you, and be gracious to you. May the Lord lift you up and lift his countenance upon you, and give you peace. I just pray the blessing of the Lord upon this night and every day in this house that you will give our president, first lady, and administration the wisdom of the mind of Chirst."

"That you will keep them all the days of their lives," said Pastor White.  "That you will bless them, their children, their household, everything they touch, God. That you will open up Heaven and revelation, that no weapon formed against them will be able to prosper. Secure their calling, that has been before the foundation of the Earth and their destiny. In the name that is above every name, Jesus Christ. Amen."
