What is good wording in our wedding invitation asking that no gifts be given, just prayers?

This is our second marriage. We both are widowed and do not have any need of gifts or money.

You could put, "Your presence is requested at the wedding lieu of gifts." You could also request people donate money in your names to a favorite charity or benefit. Such as, "In lieu of presents the bride and groom request donations be made to (insert charity)."

It is usually considered in bad taste to ask for no gifts (or, conversely, to ask for specific gifts, or mentioning gift registries etc... ) If you ask for no gifts, there will always be those who buy gifts anyway, leaving others feeling uncomfortable. Let your guests gift as they please.
