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 More Conversions

“He is able to save completely, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession.”Heb.vii. 25.

“We will give ourselves continually to prayer and the ministry of the word…. And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied exceedingly.”Acts vi. 4, 7.

Christ’s power to save, and save completely, depends on His unceasing intercession. The apostles withdrawing themselves from other work to give themselves continually to prayer was followed by the number of the disciples multiplying exceedingly. As we, in our day, give ourselves to intercession, we shall have more and mightier conversions. Let us plead for this. Christ is exalted to give repentance. The Church exists with the Divine purpose and promise of having conversions. Let us not be ashamed to confess our sin and feebleness, and cry to God for more conversions in Christian and heathen lands, of those too whom you know and love. Plead for the salvation of sinners.

how to pray.— in Deep Humility

“Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs…. O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt.”Matt. xv. 27, 28.

You feel unworthy and unable to pray aright. To accept this heartily, and to be content still to come and be blest in your unworthiness, is true humility. It proves its integrity by not seeking for anything, but simply trusting His grace. And so it is the very strength of a great faith, and gets a full answer. “Yet the dogs”—let that be your plea as you persevere for someone possibly possessed of the devil. Let not your littleness hinder you for a moment.

Truth Consequences

Proverbs 12:8 KJV A man shall be commended according to his wisdom: but he that is of a perverse heart shall be despised.

Truth has consequences.   They are good.  Truth takes us where we need to go.
Philosophers and students of the mind and emotion tell me it is okay because it is my personality.  Is it? Is it okay to allow my personality, my inborn human nature dominance?  Truth says, “No”.
The old man, the hidden man, must change to conform to truth exposure. 
Correction,  rebuke,  adjustment, tuning, and calibration with God’s truth brings right alignment of the consequences of my life.
