There are many pamphlets, brochures, and small books to teach you how to pray the rosary. And there are many, many reasons to ask for the intercession of our Mother Mary through praying the rosary. A website search will yield many options. Here are just a few examples:

Our Lady’s Rosary Novenas, illustrated, with meditations and indulgences, by Bernard A. McCaffrey, C.S.C. and Dr. Kelly Bowring, S.T.D.

Praying the Rosary for Spiritual Warfare, by Fr. Dwight Longenecker

*************************

There are also scriptural rosaries which can be offered for many different reasons. Along with the Our Father and Hail Mary prayers said on each rosary bead, a scripture line appropriate to the intention of the rosary is also said on each bead.

One example isThe Rosary for the Holy Souls in Purgatory, by Susan Tassone.

This is an sample:

First Joyful Mystery, The Annunciation, Fruit of the mystery:   Humility

‘To Him, O Virgin, whom you did conceive by the power of the Holy Spirit!’

‘You are my refuge, O Lord!’

Our Father…..

‘Strive for peace with all men, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.’ (Hebrews 12:14).

Hail Mary…..

‘The Lord your God is a devouring fire.’ (Deuteronomy 4:24) 

Hail Mary…..

‘No one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or to look into it.’ (Revelation 5:3)

Hail Mary…..

And this continues through the entirety of the rosary.
