More than a dozen evangelical Christian leaders met with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro Tuesday for an intimate conversation on his nation's future.

The group, made up of pastors, CEOs and community leaders, prayed over Bolsonaro and expressed their common goal of upholding traditional values.

"We pray, Lord, the anointing of the Holy Spirit come upon him (Bolsonaro)," prayed Christian Broadcasting Network Founder and Chairman Pat Robertson.

"That he may have wisdom. That he will hear a voice in his ear when he turns to the right or to the left saying, 'This is the way. Walk ye in it,'" Robertson continued.

"Lord, uphold him. Protect him from evil. And use him mightily in years to come," he finished.

During the course of the evening, Robertson called for joint cooperation between Brazil and CBN in order to tackle the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela.

CBN's Operation Blessing is currently partnering with groups providing food, medical aid and portable lights to suffering families in the region.

The leaders also praised Bolsonaro for his outspoken Christian beliefs.

"We all want blessings from God, but the truth is, that blessing needs the foundation of salvation," said Christ for All Nations evangelist Reinhard Bonnke.

"If a country is covered in the gospel of Jesus Christ, what a foundation," Bonnke continued.
