Prayers in Blasphemous are categorized as magical spells. Prayers are magical abilities that provide both offensive and defensive effects such as conjuring magic-based attacks to damage enemies and bosses, while some prayers that are conjured apply buffs and effect to The Penitent One that can help in certain situations, especially in battle.
In order to use a Prayer, players will need to collect and fill the Fervor Bar by attacking enemies and bosses with the Mea Culpa or by finishing off an enemy with an execution. Prayers can be obtained as loot found at specified areas of a location, given by NPCs, as quest rewards, boss drops, and can also be purchased from Merchants. Players can find a full list of all the prayers that can be found throughout the game on this page.
