Hi. Please help with these. Let us pretend the alphabet letters "WWW", "XXX", "YYY" and "ZZZ" represent names.

(hypothetical prayer list)

I pray that/for:

1) my cousin gets into the college of his choice and becomes a productive human being.

2) for my niece XXX's (should write "niece XXX's?) health and continued academic success

3) that my cousin, YYY, gets a new job and his family's financial situations get better

4) for ZZZ's recuperation from his long illness and start living life with the vigor and enthusiasm he exhibited before he became ill.

5) for my friend WWW's success with his business and his effort to establish a better relationship with his family next year

I pray...

1) that my cousin gets into the college of his choice and becomes a productive human being. [grammatically OK, but "productive human being" seems a bit soulless for a prayer]

2) for my niece XXX's (should write "niece XXX's? ) health and continued academic success.

3) that my cousin, YYY, gets a new job and that [this second "that" is not mandatory, but I prefer it in this sentence] his family's financial situation gets better. [or you could say "improves"]

4) for ZZZ's recuperation from his long illness, so that he may start living life with the vigor and enthusiasm he enjoyed ["exhibited" is not exactly wrong, but seems rather technical for this context] before he became ill.

5) for my friend WWW's success with his business and his effort to establish a better relationship with his family next year.
