I'm always praying to G-d but I don’t seem to be getting any answer

G-d hears all prayers.

The question is: do we hear His answers.

The more refined we are, the more in tune we are to His ways, the more probable it will be that we “hear” (see, understand, or feel) His answers.

To be more in tune to His ways, we must be more in tune to His will. This is accomplished by following His commandments; which for a Jew means all the commandments of the Torah, and for a gentile that means observing the Seven Noahide Laws.

Torah
Torah is G–d’s teaching to man. In general terms, we refer to the Five Books of Moses as “The Torah.” But in truth, all Jewish beliefs and laws are part of the Torah.
G-d
It is forbidden to erase or deface the name of G-d. It is therefore customary to insert a dash in middle of G-d's name, allowing us to erase or discard the paper it is written on if necessary.
