Reading the prayer book.

The Prayer book is a reward from the The Great Brain Robbery quest. By right clicking on it while wearing the Holy symbol, the player can use Prayer to heal poison at the cost of a few prayer points. Sometimes the poison will only be partially healed if you run out of prayer points.

The Prayer book should ideally be used after combat because the monster a player is fighting could poison again, causing the player to drain his prayer points further (to heal poison), and wasting time in which the monster could have been attacked. An alternative to the prayer book use is Anti-poison potion or Super anti-poison potion.

If lost, the Prayer book can be reclaimed in the Monastery where it was originally found or in a player-owned house bookcase. In the bookcase it is called "Prayer of Deliverance of Poisons".

A good place to use the Prayer book is on Ape Atoll in the Gorilla temple, where there is a prayer altar surrounded by level 167 Gorillas and level 1 poisonous spiders. Using the Prayer Book to counter the poison, fighting the Gorillas after a while will allow a player to fight the creatures without them automatically attacking. During the fight, protect from melee prayer is used sometimes in conjunction with chivalry or piety prayers.

The Prayer book's appearance is very similar to an unholy book given from the Horror from the Deep quest.

The formula for the prayer point cost is the poison's current damage minus two. If a player only has a portion of the required prayer points needed to cure poison, they will only be partially healed of poison and the remaining few points will be drained.
