From a blog shared with me by my dear, Mr. Flavius: Tales of a Wild Babushka. I found her post on prayer to be relevant and intriguing. Here's an excerpt:
——I have my prayer book in my icon corner. It is sitting right there, waiting for me. I rarely reach for it. Lately all I have been able to do is ring the bell I have in my corner and offer metanias. Prostrations. Sometimes I sing the prayers from Liturgy, as that comes more naturally to me than speaking the prayers. But my prayer book is right there, and I should give it a chance being more a part of my offerings.
