Powerful Prayers: Conversations on Faith, Hope and the Human Spirit with Today's Most Provocative Peopleby Larry King, Irwin Katsof
In early 1997, Larry King was having lunch with his daughter when she suggested that he ask the powerful people he interviews about their prayers. Do military generals pray before they go to war? Do world leaders pray before making crucial decisions? And so began his quest. Because of his unique relationship with celebrities, political leaders and other notables, King was able to query them about their relationships with God. The words of enlightenment from these people will inform and touch readers of all faiths.

I read this book after I began questioning religion and felt extremly lost. This book allowed me to see that we all have questions and not having an answer is okay. Also, not excepting everything is okay too.
The book intrigued me because Larry King on the Radio asked the best questions I ever heard in my life but since on TV he became soft and uninteresting. However, this book is not and it is good to see Larry can ask good questions when he wants to again. I particularly think this once convicted felon who did prison time is an inspiration of turning his life around. I recommend the book but not his show. When Larry gets the courage to ask Monica Lewinsky the following 13 questions we will know he is back to being a great Interviewer again but now he is just a good author: 1) Linda Tripp has suggested that Bill Clinton continues to fool around with other women right under Hillary's nose. And you told Tripp on tape that you were jealous of three or four other White House females. Who were the White House women you suspected Clinton was having sex with? 2) You once said, again on tape, that Bill Clinton couldn't settle the Paula Jones case because he'd had sex with 'hundreds' of other women and he was afraid that it would all come out. With that kind of sexual exposure, it's likely that Clinton picked up some kind of venereal disease. And indeed, there's mention in the Starr Report of Clinton canceling dates with you because of some sort of mysterious outbreak. What kind of affliction does he suffer from? 3) In 1997, Gennifer Flowers told a New York radio audience in no uncertain terms that the president was underendowed. Can you confirm or deny her observation? 4) Several women have claimed that Clinton made unwanted advances towards them. One, Juanita Broaddrick, went public with a rape charge earlier this year. Do you believe Broaddrick? 5) Reportedly, White House steward Bayani Nelvis was deeply disturbed by an encounter with you immediately after one of your first Oval Office rendezvous with Clinton. Nelvis told one associate that you appeared ' shaken' and 'disoriented'. Do you recall what Clinton did to you that left you in such a state? 6) Does Nelvis' observation of your apparent distress have anything to do with 'oral-anal contact' between you and Bill Clinton as cited in the footnotes of the Starr Report? 7) Whose idea was it to use a cigar as a sex toy? 8) When Clinton placed a phone call to Alabama Rep. Sonny Callahan to discuss the deployment of US troops to Bosnia, was it his idea for you to perform oral sex on him? 9) If your relationship was limited to oral sex, exactly how did the President of the United States get his semen onto your dress? 10) What made you think Clinton was cheating on you with Eleanor Mondale? 11) In tapes of your conversations with Linda Tripp, you mention being afraid for your physical safety no fewer than four times. For instance, once - referring to the White House - you told Tripp, 'I would not cross these people for fear of my life.' Why did you say that? 12) Did you ever tell anybody you were afraid you'd end up like former White House intern Mary Caity Mahoney? 13) You once told Tripp that Bill Clinton sometimes 'zones out on me' and then explained, 'I think he's on drugs.' Did you really believe the president was on drugs? Did you ever consume any drugs with him?
