shy about praying aloud

My husband and I have tried several times to pray together in the evening before bed. Since the very first days of our marriage, we've wanted to make this a part of our life together. We both believe in the power of prayer, and we know that it would be a blessing to our marriage. HOWEVER, we just can't get passed the the shyness. I have no problem praying in front of a committee or my family before meals, etc, but when I sit down with Cory, I clam up. He does as well. I wonder if it is because we met each other as writers and we got to know each other as writers. We hold each others writing in high esteem, and so even though we are talking to God not each other, we still feel pressure to be eloquent and smart in our words!
I've suggested that we pray silently but in each others presence, perhaps upon the same topics. Thoughts?
