If we tell the truth, there are times when prayer just gets down right monotonous. In those times, what do you do to breathe life back into your spiritual practice?

What a great subject. I bet that 95 % of GOD-fearing people have trouble shutting out distractions when they try to "talk" to GOD. How can any of us hope to build a more intimate relationship with THE FATHER, SON, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, if we are easily distracted during prayer, or find prayer monotonous. I created a spiritual guided imagery cd for my personal use that enables me to shut out or ignore distractions that might interfere with just about the most important time that anyone can spend during their day---connecting in a close, personal, and intimate manner with GOD, through our  LORD AND SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST, with the assistance of THE HOLY SPIRIT.  After all, prayer should be a component of our lives that we look forward to, not something boring or monotonous. I recommend that everyone try to create a spiritual guided imagery cd to assist them in developing a more intimate relationship with the TRINITY. Prayer is one of the greatest gifts that we have been blessed  with, and with a little effort, it can also be one of the most satisfying aspects of our personal lives.

I find the suggestions (some of which I have used) that are most helpful are:
make prayer a priority  - set a time
study ABOUT prayer
meditate (you didn't use that term, but two of the ten suggestions were basically 'to meditate')
and of course,
join the community and pray together.
Blessed are You, HaShem, Who blesses the years.
