You say that you have a religious affiliation and that you feel that you are only going through the motions in your services and that you miss the peace that was once there in a part of the service.
Let me say that I experianced something like you are describing, also. I beleive that this is a good sign at this time, for you say that you remember the peace that you once had and would like it restored, for you say that you desparatly miss it.
It has been revealed to me in an experiance that I had that even some of the ancient beleivers experianced what you are describing. Some were so depressed that they asked God to take their life and later had their joy restored. So the point that I am making here is that those with faith can be awfully depressed and have their joy restored.
