The reporting verb is used while writing in the reported (indirect) speech. 

Example: Kiran said, "I wish you could stay a little longer."  (direct speech)

Kiran said that she wished I could stay a little longer. 

"I will order lunch for you," Mohsin said to Sheena. 

Mohsin offered to buy lunch for Sheena. 

Told, offered, promised, etc. are some examples of reporting verbs.
