Are you open to the possibility that there isn't anyone out there that hears prayers?
If you have a belief in God that is not flexible, then you're going to keep getting frustrated when that belief doesn't yield fruit. Your expectations are driving your disappointments, not "God".
Let go of the fixed idea of "God" and you'll be able to make sense out of His silence. If he's not there then now you can see why your prayers aren't answered.
That forces you to save yourself and not wait for a miracle.
Human will projects an idea of God then tries to live like the idea is Truth. Can't you see that your idea of God isn't matching with reality?
Another way to look at it...You've got a natural ability (call it God-given if you want) to learn and grow. Waiting for a savior isn't using your natural talents and capabilities.
