Feeling despondent due to duas not being fulfilled

Q: I have been feeling very low on imaan lately. I have been praying for something very specific for the last 3 years but it is not getting fulfilled. No doubt Allah knows best and has the best for us in store but one question that keeps me anxious all day is that, what have I done to earn the annoyance of Allah and not even get one namaz, surah or even a sujood accepted that I have been praying for that purpose. 

A: Every dua that you have made is accepted insha Allah. Acceptance does not have to be like how you would want it to be. Go on trying, and Allah Ta`ala loves your trying and your crying.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
