The Christian community is invited to participate in Lodi's observance of the National Day of Prayer on Thursday.
This year's theme, "One Nation Under God," is based on Psalm 33:12, which states that "blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord," said Chris Townsend, lead pastor of Emanuel Lutheran Church and president of the Ministerial Association of Greater Lodi.
