A proper prayer cycle is important for an Orthodox Christian. I remembered that some years ago there was a website with daily prayers and occasional prayers. Thanks to Google, I found it. http://www.orthodoxnet.com/worship/dailyprayers.html
I am not endorsing the translations per se, there are a number of them out there, but textually they are common among our varied traditions. These are attributed to the Antiochian Orthodox Church.
By studying them and practicing them, I think your questions will be answered.
