prayer is osturi

osturiosturi = prayer (noun) (some things Google found for "osturi"; a rare term; a tribe and a type of rug from Iran, from near a town named Ostur (also known as Estur); a rare last name; possibly a name in India; similar word "nosturi" means "crane" in Finnish)

Word derivation for "prayer"
Basque = otoitz, Finnish = rukous
Miresua = osturi

I usually chose to end my Miresua word in consonant when both the Basque and the Finnish words end in a consonant. This word is an exception to that unwritten rule. Perhaps I should have ended this word in Z or S, but I liked the look of this particular combination of letters.
