Your life works in cycles and seasons. That means that some periods of our lives are all green grass, shiny newness and picnics. It also means that sometimes they'll be nothing but dead leaves, rain and sniffles. Whichever season you are in right now, God's on it. He's the one who decides when we get spring-like-growth seasons. And when we need a stretch of... being stretched... He brings us into (and through) it. As Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NLT) says 'For everything there is a season.'
That's not to play down how outright terrible those tough seasons can feel, but we've got to hold onto the fact that they're a necessary part of God's long-term plan. Think about a tree. The only reason it has space to grow strong, healthy, green leaves in spring is because it lost the leaves it'd finished with last autumn. And it only grew new ones after shivering, bare-branched, through winter. If everything looks barren and painfully cold around you right now, we 100% guarantee that it's only for a time. In that time, the best thing you can do is stick to God, and let the difficulty that He has allowed you to face do its work. When a new season comes around, you'll find yourself ready for it.
So what now? Seasons come and go. So it's important to have a stable centre to your life. Are there any places where you live that you can turn into 'prayer spaces'? It doesn't have to be a wooden bench to kneel at, it could even just be a beanbag.
