Back on DB's post about prayer, Double Harvard indicated he didn't pray because he found the entire process tedious and boring. A valid complaint and one the rabbis were clearly concerned about as is evidenced by their warning not to make one's prayer routine ("keva").
I'd like to know what single prayer do you find most inspiring, uplifting, moving, emotional, etc?
What single prayer do you find the most tedious, boring, monotonous, and dry?
In each case, what makes you feel this way? Is it the words of the prayer, a song or melody attached to it, a special significance it has taken on in your life, or maybe something else?
