AFAIK never used in a sentence.

  The Treaty of Alliance (a.k.a. the Khitomer Accords?) ended the war between the Federation and the Klingon Empire in 2293. The pact allows for mutual aid and defense against aggressors, but forbids interference in the internal affairs of either government. (TNG "Redemption I")

  "God forbid I should agree with Spock, but he was right." (McCoy, TOS "The Enemy Within")

  “God forbid I should miss my first look at the wormhole.” (Troi to herself, TNG “The Price”)
