“And when My servant question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them bear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright.”(Surah Al-Baqarah: 186)
No other relationship will ever be more important than the one you have with yourself, and the one you have with God. Rely on yourself, and rely on Him and Insha'Allah you can get through any rough patches.
‘‘And your Lord says: Call upon Me and I will respond to your supplication.’’ [Surah Ghaafir 40:60]
However, it can often happen that no matter how strong our faith we feel that God is not responding to our prayers. Those in distress should be sincere in their du’aas, but they should also remember that Allah SAW doesn’t always give us what we want, but he will certainly give us what we need.
Sometimes not having your prayers answered is a blessing for Allah SAW in disguise.
‘‘Our Lord! We have heard the call of one calling us to faith: ‘Believe you in the Lord,’ and we have believed. Our Lord! Forgive us our sins, remit from us our evil deeds, and take to Yourself our souls in the company of the righteous. Our Lord! Grant us what You did promise unto us through Your Messengers, and do not disgrace us on the Day of Judgment, for You never break Your promise. And their Lord has accepted of them, and answered them: Never will I suffer to be lost the work of any of you, whether male or female.’’ [Surah Al-'lmraan 3:193-195]
