3.0.6 source says:

case PRAYER_HOLY_WORD:
{
(void)dispel_evil(randint(plev * 4));
(void)hp_player(1000);
(void)set_afraid(0);
(void)set_poisoned(0);
(void)set_stun(0);
(void)set_cut(0);
break;
}

I think it is basically the same as the more powerful versions of Healing and Dispel Evil in the dungeon books, at the same time.

IMO it's not too great for the money.
