Trevin Wax at Kingdom's People, has a link to his "Prayer Room, intended to help others as he feels he has been helped to pray.
Several years ago, I found my prayer life was becoming dry. I had a list of requests, but no overall structure in which to present them. At the end of my prayer times, instead of feeling strengthened and nourished, I felt guilty and deflated. I seemed to be saying the same “spontaneous” prayers over and over again, without much meaning to my words.

A good friend gave me The Book of Common Prayer as a help to my prayer life. Written prayers were new to me. But they reinvigorated my prayer life. I approached the written prayers of past saints much as a child trying on the shoes of his dad. Would my feet ever fit into the spiritual shoes of the giants who have gone before me? I decided to pray those prayers, to pray Scripture, to pray the psalms, and to let my prayer life be shaped by the beauty of the written word.
For each day of the week, and for each part of the day, he provides prayers from Scripture and from the experience of the Church. I've just found the site, but my impression is that it will be very helpful.
