I watch sports a lot and one hundred percent of the time when something happens where someone is hurt the talking heads say that phrase and its followed with are with x,y z. 

While its a useful phrase to coin I don’t think they should use it unless their thoughts and prayers are really going toward the thing they are talking about.

Also, after a game the star player is often interviewed and they say “I just want to thank God..” 

I am pretty sure God has more important things to worry about than giving someone a good game or letting them luck out a win.
