Psalms 33:12 reads: Blessed [fortunate, prosperous, and favored by God] is the nation whose God is the Lord,
The people whom He has chosen as His own inheritance.
and Proverbs 14:34 states: Righteousness, moral and spiritual integrity and virtuous character, exalts a nation,
But sin is a disgrace to any people. Pastor Magead Salloum of the New Testament Church in Rome, NY speaks of God's blessing His own people as he wishes "Happy Birthday United States"
