Prayer Plugin

Use the pray, bless and curse commands to issue prayer requests to the gods for special abilities and powers.


  • Player may pray to request flight, lightning smite, health, storms, food, minions, allies, shelter, "theforce" and much more.
  • Player may also bless or curse other players.
  • Player's XP level determines prayer quota and odds.
  • Punishment will be issued by the gods for excessive prayer attempts.
  • Prayer quota will reset after granted prayer, punishment, death or after player sleeps.
  • Player must hold a holy book to perform prayer (configurable).
  • Player may use Prayer Altars to improve chances of prayer grant. Praying near Villagers or holding a Wither skull also help odds.
  • Unanswered prayers may randomly yield small amounts of XP points.
  • Supports permissions and configurable settings such as cooldowns, grant durations, world restrictions, and more.

    Could you allow the option in the config file to choose if the OP's are the GODS so that if someone prays for somthing OP's -or those with Perms- get a message in chat saying for example PRAYER<Username>: has prayed for flight! for example. then the 'God' could type /prayer <grant/deny> <username> and the same goes for bless and cursing? I think this would be an amazing addition to the plugin.

    Thanks for the feedback. I just uploaded a new jar for bukkit-1.7.2-R0.3. Pending approval. Should be available soon.

    If you could update this to 1.7 that'd be great. It just says "Type "/pray help" or "/bless help" for a list of options." when trying to do anything. This was one of the main reasons people donated to my server and I'd hate to see it go.

    Any chance for an update for 1.7?

    Could you make it so that if a player is in (or near) a protected region, prayers that spawn/change blocks are canceled out? If need be, perhaps you could utilise this plugin to hook into region-protection plugins.

    Or, you could add configuration to certain prayers/curses to make them friendly to blocks (as in, not change any blocks whatsoever). For example, you could make "theforce" apply to entities only, "flood" simply teleport the player into the nearest body of water (or do nothing if it can't find water), and "waters" make water near the player explode without block damage.

    Also, it would be helpful if "mob-spawning" prayers/curses could be far more configurable (changing mob types that spawn, how much of a mob can spawn, allowing the mobs to despawn after a time frame, etc.).

    You might want to leave the default settings in place and then set up your permissions from that point. That is, if I understand your situation correctly. If not, feel free to provide more detail. Thanks.

    How can I configure this so that it only follows the permissions? I can turn on/off the "allow non-op to pray" but it doesn't follow the permissions at all.

    @Kunfury: Go

    Prayer requests will only work with in-game players. There is no queue of sorts. As for the command block. I'd have to look into that.

    Is there a way to give blessings through command blocks? I am able to give them through the /sudo command but that only works if the person is online.
