Why, when I pray, do bad things occur in my life?

I pray before any decision I make in life and pray for others. I always end my prayers with 'Thy will be done'
Yet, I have lost my job. Repeatedly had my heart broken. I read scripture concerning my finances and guarding my heart.
How can I possibly spread the Gospel, when deep in my heart I know that future Christians will go through so much pain and unanswered prayers.
Yes, I know that God's way are not my ways. At this point, why should I bother to pray? It feels like I am being punished even though the Bible reads my sins have been forgiven. I am really afraid to pray any longer. I feel so left out of the abundant life I am suppose to have.
