The purpose of doing preliminary practices is for you to purify obstacles to achieving realizations of the path to enlightenment for the sake of all sentient beings.  Therefore, you should base each preliminary practice on the particular guru yoga that you do, such as the Six-Session Guru Yoga, Lama Chöpa,  Lama Tsongkhapa Guru Yoga and the guru yogas of various deities, such as the Tara Guru Yoga.
