Praying prayerfully

The feeling that this is all boredom and meaningless while reciting the morning and evening prayers (from the breviary) is not a strange one for any religious who has really tried to pray sincerely.  However, what keeps me going is the self-assurance that prayer is not only what I have to say to God but also includes what God has to say to me.  Therefore, rather than utter those lines and passages as though for a reading practice, I might as well pray them. After all why waste precious moments of vocal prayer - that too when we are often so stingy about allotting time for it.
