"I need an urgent prayer request because I'm facing eviction at my apartments complex. I just graduated from college in June of 2019 of this year it took me three months to get interviews. Well, every interview I'm going to is saying no after every interview. I have to call to check my status because they not even informing me that I'm not selected if i don't call. I also suffer from depression. I went to school for four years to try to fight depression and better myself and my daughter who has autism. I want the best for my daughter. I'm a single mom that's trying. God, I know I'm trying now. I'm becoming depressed and in doubtful spirits. I applied to over a 100 jobs. I don't understand. Is God mad at me? I'm a Christian. I'm not perfect. I love God. I'm just devastated and hurt. Can you all please pray a door opens for me? Thanks God bless!" - Vanity
