I recommend...

The Valley of Vision by Arthur Bennett. A collection of Puritan Prayers. The Puritans were great thinkers and had their theology nailed. I've quoted from this book before, and I can't recommend it highly enough. Prayers for when you don't know what to pray, when you are praying in a great Christian truth, prayers to read and ponder. Excellent for when your heart is so overwhelmed (either in joy or in sorrow) that words don't come easily. Also useful for getting into the habit of praying well structured prayers of clarity. As the blurb says, "This book has been prepared not to 'supply' prayers but to prompt and encourage the Christian as he treads the path on which others have gone before."
