To spur you to pray, we are going to post the day by day helps from the end of the book .  Enjoy.  Pray along.

what to pray.— for the Spirit of Christ in His People

“I am the Vine, ye are the branches.”John xv. 5.

“That ye should do as I have done to you.”John xiii. 15.

As branches we are to be so like the Vine, so entirely identified with it, that all may see that we have the same nature, and life, and spirit. When we pray for the Spirit, let us not only think of a Spirit of power, but the very disposition and temper of Christ Jesus. Ask and expect nothing less: for yourself, and all God’s children, cry for it.

how to pray.— Striving in Prayer

“That ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me.”Rom. xv. 30.

“I would ye knew what great conflict I have for you.”Col. ii. 1.

All the powers of evil seek to hinder us in prayer. Prayer is a conflict with opposing forces. It needs the whole heart and all our strength. May God give us grace to strive in prayer till we prevail.
