God forgives sins?  We hear that all the time, from hundreds of preachers.  But God condemns sins and forgives sinners.  Not theology or Scriptural accuracy here (hardly) but simple (not that it’s a simple thing to achieve) clarity. 

Or the priest or lector prays for those suffering every misfortune.  No.  No one suffers every misfortune.  He wants to say any misfortune.  It’s hard to corroborate his prayer with “Lord, hear our prayer” in answer to such non-sense. 

Of course, there’s the time-honored forgive us our trespasses, isn’t there?  But forgive our trespasses we don’t say, now do we? 

Think about it.
