No , I won't be talking about what some will be told at the Great Judgment when the goats will claim that they did things in the Lord's Name . This OP is concerns the annoying habit of some in public prayer saying "Lord" so many times in the course of public prayer . It's usually said as a filler . It may be intirely unintentional , with nerves getting in the way of an effective public prayer . In ordinary conversation they may have their fair share of "Man" ,"Dude" , "He/she goes ..." ,"You know" , "Like" and on and on . Have any of you ever approached anyone with this verbal tendency when addressing the Lord in public prayer ?
