Welcome to Mindful Prayers for Students, I’m your host Sydney Montgomery. On this show, I provide students a moment of peace, meditation, and prayer, in the midst of the stressors of applying to college or law school, studying for exams, and juggling competing work and family obligations. As the owner and founder of S. Montgomery Admissions Consulting, and the first lawyer in my family, I am passionate about helping students through the college and law school admissions process in a way that helps them break down generational barriers, gain confidence, and feel supported through community.

I want to thank you for showing up today and carving out just a few minutes of your time to center and listen to yourself and what you need. Prayer is such a powerful way to stay connected to your faith, whether that's a Judeo-Christian faith, or whether you simply want to focus on this as a time for meditation and self-reflection.

    Prayers for When You're Feeling Hopeless

    Prayers for When You're Feeling Hopeless

    Sometimes we're not really sure why God called us on this crazy path. We are not sure sometimes. We may think that yes, God has called me to be a lawyer. But then the road is still not easy and we're confused. God called me to be a lawyer, but the LSAT exam has been difficult.
    For this prayer, we ask that God would illuminate some clarity for us and remind us that yes, God has called us, but He did not necessarily say it was going to be easy. He did not say we would fail either. We pray for hope during the fits of adversity.

    Prayer For Focus Amidst Distractions

    Prayer For Focus Amidst Distractions

    Whether it's a paper or project, the ability to focus can be impossible. Our minds wander to anything, but the task at hand, and we eagerly imagine the end. However, we can't just skip to the end. Blessings are at the opposite end of our focus, and we must pray against distractions that would rob us of our blessings, our reward. We pray to remove the temptations of distraction so that we may focus and reap the blessings that are brought to us. For, we know that patience is a virtue.

    Having Courage to Ask for Letters of Recommendation

    Having Courage to Ask for Letters of Recommendation

    I want to talk to you about asking for letters of recommendation and building relationships with others. It can feel like you are losing control by having someone else write an important part of your application, but it is important to remember that God puts people in our lives to help us.

    God Sees Your Needs

    God Sees Your Needs

    The scripture I want to share with you today is Philippians 4:19, God will supply all your needs according to His riches and glory in Christ Jesus. God has a plan and He will supply your needs. Maybe your needs are to get into a certain school or achieve a certain score, but whatever your needs are I challenge you to think about how God has supplied your needs up to now and will continue to supply your needs.

    God Will See You To The Finish Line

    God Will See You To The Finish Line

    I want to talk to you about having faith that God will see His plan through. The scripture I'm sharing today is Philippians 1:6, "He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” As you wrap up your applications and exams, remember that God will help you through to the end.
