There are people who, today, have difficulties of praying for the Popes intentions - but - few knows of what the intentions actually are:

"The Pope’s intention always includes the following objects:

i. The progress of the Faith and triumph of the Church.
ii. Peace and union among Christian Princes and Rulers.
iii. The conversion of sinners.
iv. The uprooting of heresy.

These intentions may be fittingly recalled and prayed for after Communion, or at the visit;
but a general intention of praying according to the mind of the Pope is sufficient ; and any prayers may be used which are not already of obligation, e.g., the Little Hours of a priests Office.
