St. Andrew's Cathedral, 5PM. It strikes me that the form of prayer that works best for me are those read or recited, rather than the spontaneous or extemporaneous. These rubrics that are repeated week after week or night after night become a kind of comfortable house of words in which my soul walks about and speaks with its creator. If I grow bored with reciting the prayers I find that speaking them *more* slowly, more thoughtfully, can bring them back to life.
