Greatest prayer helper book ever! Tons of great tips to start intimate, honest prayer with God. I realize this is not meant to be read cover to cover as it states in the introduction, but I did to get an overview and will keep it handy to help me indefinitely. I don't see how this couldn't help everybody who's seeking God in one way or many!

I began using "God I have Issues" to help me pray when Father Mark was my spiritual director. Learning to acknowledge my emotions and talk to Jesus about them was the real beginning of my life of prayer. I often give this book to people who are beginning to pray and highly recommend it to anyone seeking deeper relationship with God.

This work was critically helpful in my first baby-steps into regular contemplative prayer. Fr. Thibodeaux is a master spiritual director and that shows forth in the reflections and suggestions contained herein.

This is not a book I would read from cover to cover. I have used it when I was struggling with a certain issue.
