For the last 2 years, I have had so many problems, failures, and rejections, despite lots of prayers. I lost the feeling that I am Christ's favorite—that God loves me, protects me, or even cares about me. Any evil person can do any harm to me. Is it possible to get the good feelings back and how?

Discouragement is the devil's priceless tool. Despite your hardships, our Lord Jesus Christ has not and will not abandon you. Fight the devil hard by doing more of the good that you do. The more he wars against you, the more good you ought to do.  "Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also" (John 14:1-3).  

"We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body" (2 Corinthians 4:8-10).

"By your patience possess your souls" (Luke 21:19).
