As if that is not enough to make a believer buoyant and cheerful, Allah further acquaints us with those blessed people who beseech Him and He takes pleasure in their asking. So maybe He is taking time to answer your prayers because you are one of the fortunate ones whose asking He enjoys and thus wants them to keep beseeching a bit more. The Beloved liked your actions, what more remains? Your bounties are ready and certified! A source for the Momin to regard even the sorrow inflicted upon him by His beloved Allah as being better than any (worldly) happiness.
So if you desire an enriched life and redemption from your sins, along with coming out triumphant here and in the Hereafter then, ‘remember Allah abundantly’; He will make you stride in His shade with all the tenderness of someone who had incessantly been in wait to embrace you in His loving warmth.
