If the sermon was successful, the rage buff will be applied over a certain amount of time depending on the quality of the prayer. The base duration is 36:00 minutes for a Copper Quality quality prayer and gets doubled and tripled for Silver Quality and Gold Quality quality prayer, respectively.

(Note: up to v. 1.024 one day was 6 minutes long, hence the buffs applied for one, two or three weeks. Now weekdays are 9 minutes long)
