First lady Melania Trump opened her husband's rally in Florida on Saturday with the Lord's Prayer and a promise to pursue initiatives for "women and children around the world."

She also said she would "always stay true to myself, and be truthful to you."

Melania, who lives in New York away from her husband as their son Barron finishes out the school year, has been by the president's side for many events throughout his first month in Washington.

She was in Washington, D.C., last week for the first time as a host to help President Donald Trump welcome Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and was also in Palm Beach, Florida, when Trump hosted Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe the week before.  

"I'm committed to creating and supporting initiatives dear to my heart, which will have impact on women and children all around the world," she said to a cheering crowd.

She also said her husband "is creating a country of great safety and prosperity."

Franklin Graham, an evangelist and missionary, praised Melania for opening with the Lord's Prayer. 

"Has this ever happened in American politics before?" Graham wrote on his Facebook page.

"In Melbourne, Florida, today, First Lady Melania Trump read the Lord’s Prayer before introducing her husband, President Donald J. Trump. Three cheers for her! And may God bless our country!"
