Cissy Houston Breaks Silence on Bobbi Kristina: 'There's Not a Great Deal of Hope'
Whitney Houston's mother urged listeners to pray for her granddaughter
Cissy Houston broke her silence regarding the condition of her granddaughter Wednesday, Bobbi Kristina Brown, saying there is “not a great deal of hope” for recovery.
Houston, 81, mother to Whitney Houston and grandmother to Brown, gave an exclusive interview with New York’s WBLS. She reiterated that Brown, 22, had been moved to a rehabilitation facility and said though recovery seems unlikely, the family has been praying.
“I don’t pray like that. I give it to God one time, because I know he’s able, and I cannot change a thing,” Houston explained. “So I’m asking everyone to pray to the Lord, who we know can do something about it.”
Earlier this week, a source close to the Browns told PEOPLE that some family members wanted to move her out of the hospital and into the rehab facility earlier, but her father, Bobby Brown, held off on the decision.
In the WBLS interview, Houston said she had put her faith in God.
“If he works a miracle, thank God,” she said. “If it happens the other way, I’m all right.”
