The Vatican has today (5 Feb) released the new formula for the Good Friday prayer for the Jewish people for the liturgy according to the 1962 Edition of the Roman Missal:

Liturgy of Good Friday

Missale Romanum, 1962 Edition

Oremus et pro Iudaeis.

Ut Deus et Dominus noster illuminet corda eorum, et agnoscant Iesum Christum salvatorem omnium hominum.

Oremus. Flectamus genua. Levate.

Omnipotens sempiterne Deus, qui vis ut omnes homines salvi fiant et ad agnitionem veritatis veniant, concede propitius, ut plenitudine gentium in Ecclesiam Tuam intrante omnis Israel salvus fiat. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen

A reading of the text in English could be:

Let us pray for the Jews. May the Lord Our God enlighten their hearts so that they may acknowledge Jesus Christ, the saviour of all men.

Almighty and everlasting God, you who want all men to be saved and to reach the awareness of the truth, graciously grant that, with the fullness of peoples entering into your church, all Israel may be saved.
