Evelyn Sharma prays for unity and peace at ‘National Prayer Breakfast’

Bollywood actress Evelyn Sharma, who represented the Christian faith at President Donald Trump’s ‘National Prayer Breakfast’ at the Hilton’s International Ballroom in Washington, D.C., on February 2nd, prayed for unity and peace. The annual event attended by the leaders of the nation, representing all major faiths and political affiliations in the nation and from around the world, was attended by more than 3,000 guests, including politicians, religious leaders and other international invitees from over 130 countries.
She addressed the august gathering after King Abdullah of Jordan and was followed by Sister Rosemary Nyirumbe from Uganda. Sharma was probably one of the few Indian faces at the event. In delivering her first international speech, Sharma, of Indian and German descent, joined the high ranks of leadership from various countries and religious backgrounds, who gave inspirational speeches, at the massive event hosted by members of the U.S. Congress and organized on their behalf by The Fellowship Foundation, a Christian organization.
“Evelyn shared the story of her own faith, urging the world for acceptance, unity and peace, which brought her a standing ovation by the thousands of guests present at the event,” said Dale Bhagwagar, her publicist. “From a PR point of view, the Indian actress has bypassed many, by opting for an intellectual speech at an event for world unity of religions, instead of a flashy photo-op.”
The actress, who has starred in films like “Main Tera Hero” and “Yaariyna,” later took to Twitter to share her “overwhelming experience.” She wrote: “What an honor and humbling feeling to be standing in front of the world’s leaders of all kind in Washington DC to share my story of faith ❤ Thank you so much for inviting me! Praise God!”
