I’ve always struggled with daily prayer. I used to do my daily readings when I went to bed, but from Uni onwards, that tended to be rather late, and I was too tired.
I’ve never got into morning prayers, but desparation caused me to bargain with God one day.
“Since I need quiet to pray, and my wife gets up at six, I’ll pray at five a.m., if you wake me up!”
Result: I now wake around 5am, even if I went to bed at 1am. God obviously takes me far too seriously. A wise friend suggested I had to keep my end of the bargain, or repent and do a new deal.
I’ll let you know what happens
