Rules for changing such sentences into indirect narrations are given below:-
Said changes to prayed/wished/bade/cursed/thanked etc as per the sense of the sentence.
Inverted commas (” “) are removed and “that” is used instead. However, in some sentences, “that” is not used.

As the given sentence is in indirect form, one can apply these rules in reverse order to form the direct speech.
