Rules of Direct and Indirect Speech of Optative Sentence

We change the “Reporting Verb” of direct speech into indirect speech according to the tense at the time of narration change. I have mentioned the reporting verb below.

 

“God” is mentioned in the Optative sentence

Direct

Indirect

Say wish /pray/bless
[,] that

If we find the word “God” in the optative sentence we use “Wish / Pray / bless” instead of “Say”. Next, we do not use objects. We replace commas with “That”. Then we follow the sentence structure [S + may + v + o] at the time of narration change.
