  • God, is she a messenger like a senior sister whom you assign to me since I have prayed for over 2 months?
  • God, is she a messenger like a senior sister whom you have assigned to me since I have prayed for over 2 months?
  • The "since" here is a bit ambiguous: it can mean either "after" or "because." I've put a possible use of the perfect in gray, since it's not actually a correction, only a suggestion.

  • And she knew my inner affliction very well, even though I haven't told her.
  • And she knew my inner affliction(s?) very well, even though I haven't told her.
  • Instead of "affliction(s)," you could just use "pain" or "suffering," both of which could be used as non-count nouns here, with no need to choose between singular and plural.
And she knew my inner affections/pain/suffering very well, even though I haven't told her.

  • Day by day, when I realize her more and more that I found we have more and more similar backgrounds and interests -- studying spiritual books, intrapersonal skills, Tao Te Ching and Taoism, similar family background, loving curry rice and nature.

  • Someone else on Lang-8 recently asked about "as" -- it's a perfect fit here. There are a couple of ways one might make the part from "when/as ..." to "... similar backrounds," but the one above works fairly well. You could use "find" instead of "have found." It feels a bit odd to repeat the "more and more"; it's probably only needed once. But I've left it, because it's not "wrong." Thank you, by the way, for teaching me 愈來愈多 -- I'd only ever used 越来越多 before.

  • There always is a voice telling me that we have known each other for a long time since we first met.
  • Since we first met, Tthere always is a voice telling me that we have known each other for a long time since we first met. -- or (better) -- Since we first met, Tthere has always beenis a voice telling me that we have known each other for a long time since we first met.
  • The "since we first met" has to be moved closer to "is/has been a voice"; it modifies that verb, not "known." It could in theory be "There has always been a voice, since we first met, telling me ...," which would put it closer, too -- but it's more natural at the very beginning. Although it's possible to use the simple present, the perfect is better because it indicates the continuity.
Since we first met, there has always been a voice telling me that we have known each other for a long time.
