1989 Bronco II - Brakes

How do I bleed the brakes on my 89 bronco ii. It sat all of last winter because the transmission was not working. Recently I got the tranny fixed but, now it seems as if only one brake is working. I have to push the pedal all the way to the floor for it to stop. I have checked the fluid level and it is fine. also took a look at each of the brakes but, could not see any problems. So I was thinking that maybe the lines had air in them, which was making them not work properly. However, I do not know how to go about doing this. Can you help, please? If not thank you for your time anyway.

Here is a picture of the zerk fitting.
It's a small nut, like an 8mm. You'll need two people to do it. Have one press the brakes 3 or 4 times, all the way up and down as far as possible, on the last one just hold it down. The other person will open or unscrew the fitting, just enough to let a small stream come out. When the stream dies down close the fitting before it's stopped and do this whole process 2 or 3 times with a constant stream and no air. Start with the brake farthest away from the master cylinder/where the fluid goes.
