If you have been true to your god and you are not in Gehennom, you become invulnerable while praying, i.e. you can't die. Prayer is the only method to become invulnerable. Prayer requires three turns[1] and invulnerability is in effect until the prayer ends. Caution: a mind flayer's psychic blast and a stinking cloud can damage you while invulnerable.

While you are invulnerable:

You can also become invulnerable in SLASH'EM by drinking a potion of invulnerability, however, this is vastly different from the invulnerability caused by praying. Notably, not preventing death by any source other than hit-point loss.
