I hate praying! it is boring! my mind wonders away and i cannot control it. i tried reading spiritual books, pray about praying ... nothing puts me in the mood to pray. i am dry spiritually and cannot stand it anymore. prayer is very important for me as it makes my day but lack of it puts me is despair. i feel like God has abandoned me and hates me. It has not always been this way, i used to like praying and doing spiritual exercises.
