Prayer powders are made by grinding scarab shells. These powders are consumable items granting 30 minute boosts related to the Prayer skill, with some offering defensive and restorative bonuses.

The effect can stack up to an hour by scattering multiple powders of the same type; scattering powders that would put the timer to over an hour prompt the player with a warning and can only top the timer up to 60 minutes. All active powder effects are lost on death.
