There's this person who prays and begs God to kill him but instead an angel comes and gives him water or something like that. I think it's in one of the first readings from April to July 2015, but I couldn't find it.

  • I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is a verse search question.

    @curiousdannii Requests for a specific verse have generally been considered on-topic. It is when someone asks to search for a topic ("verses that say X") that it is closed. IMO, I think that is a worthwhile distinction.

You are probably thinking of Elijah, as recounted in 1 Kings 19. It occurs right after Elijah's 'competition' with the prophets of Baal, and also includes the "still small voice" of God.

The Catholic Church prescribes this passage, 1 Kings 19:4–8, as the first reading for the 19th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Cycle B, which in 2015 fell on August 9th—you were nearly, but not quite, correct in identifying the date.
