Lynne Spears asks for your prayers for Britney

Britney Spears’s mother is asking for “prayers” following the news of her daughter’s hospitalization.

Lynne Spears was “extremely distraught” on the phone, and said, “Just say prayers,” when reached by Access Hollywood.

Lynne, who’s been in constant contact with Britney, and 16-year-old sister Jamie Lynn have been in Louisiana following the December news nugget that Jamie Lynn is pregnant at 16.

Meanwhile, the whole family is “terrified” about the situation, a source close to the family tells People. “Everyone has been worried for some time,” says their source. “Her world has been crumbling around her and this is another call for help. Her parents are just devastated. Nobody knows if they can take much more, but they’re trying to be as strong as they can.”

Spears’s father Jamie was at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Thursday night, and her older brother Bryan was expected to show up Friday, according to a People source.

A family friend tells People: “I just hope she’ll pull out of this and get on the right road to recovery. A good rest here in Kentwood might do her some good.”
