The Three Prayers were religious cermonies in which the Númenóreans worshipped Eru. The Prayers were called Erukyermë ("Prayer to Eru"), Erulaitalë ("Praise of Eru"), and Eruhantalë ("Thanksgiving to Eru") and took place in the spring, midsummer, and autumn respectively. During these ceremonies, the King (or Queen) of Númenor and many of the people would ascend the Meneltarma and make offerings.
