Does anyone have some sources they can recite for me so I can research and learn
some ancient prayer techniques?
If you want to study ancient prayer, you might consider purchasing a Jewish Siddur (“prayer book”) which contains many ancient Hebrew prayers dating back thousands of years.
Art Scroll has perhaps some of the best Jewish prayer books from an Orthodox Jewish perspective, most of which have an English translation. While not thoroughly Catholic, you will be amazed at the breadth and depth of the prayers, as well as their commonality with many of the prayers said in the Traditional Latin Mass.
If you are looking for traditional Catholic resources, I would suggest the Monastic Diurnal from the Abbey Shop in England, which is the St. Benedict version of the Divine Office, exclusive of Matins (midnight prayer). It is an excellent resource, and contains many ancient prayers from the Book of Psalms (“Tehillim”).
Armed with a traditional Jewish Siddur, and a Monastic Diurnal, you could take a lifetime of study to thoroughly understand the contents of each book. If I were stranded on a desert island, and had to choose 2 prayer books to take with me, these would be the 2 books I would choose.
Both contain a treasure chest of ancient prayers.
Last suggestions: The Raccolta. This is the official list of prayers from the Catholic Church. Again, a treasure trove of ancient prayers, and a very beautiful layout as well. Baronius Press also released the Divine Office in 3 volumes, which is the Traditional Catholic version of the Liturgy of the Hours.
