    Yes, this sounds like a prayer.....thing (not sure what to call it). We still have a small one (about 1 1/2" x 3") from when we lived in Japan nearly 30 years ago. Typically you'd see these hanging from the rear view mirror. There was a small temple over the hill from where we lived where they would have occasional "car blessings"; you bring your new car in to get some good mojo applied to it. :)

    i think the closest thing it could be called is a charm. pretty much a blessing in paper form that is ment to protect what it is attached to. car/truck/house etc. but of course they have different ones for different things.

    what a cool thread!!!
    Here is my list to date (in order of discovery):

    1. One, wire wheel with all the bristles burned off (location: glove box)
    2. One, 1 Yen coin (Location: defoger vent on dash, its still there, cant get it out)
    3. One, small 2-3oz clear plastic jug, similar in shape to an 8oz sunny D bottle, only smaller (Location: under passenger seat)
    4. One, piece of white chalk with yellow plastic chalk holder (Location: under driver's seat in rear near seatback)
    5. One, cotton grey/white sock (like the sock monkey sock w/ out the red heal)(Location: in the pocket on the drivers side seat back) <-- Hope no one had "turned Japanese" with that one!
    6. One mini road flare (Location: Passenger Boot)

    When I brought my Sambar home and began cleaning it up I heard something rattling around in the ash tray. I opened it up and found the cigarette lighter--along with a pack of rolling papers and a couple of roaches. I'm glad I discovered them--it would have been fun explaining to someone else what a minister was doing with that stuff...
