Bobbi Kristina Brown has been in a medically induced coma for almost three months, ever since she was discovered facedown in the bathtub of her Roswell, Georgia home. Now her grandmother, Cissy Houston, is weighing in on the situation, saying hope is fading fast.

Cissy Houston, mother of the late Whitney Houston--Bobbi Kristina Brown's mom--did an interview with New York radio station WBLS recently. It was during her conversation with the station host Shaila that she shared out loud what many have quietly believed for quite some time.

Houston's talk turned to prayer, and how she prays. She acknowledged that yes, Bobbi Kristina Brown was recently moved to a rehab facility, and that the family is constantly praying for her.

"I don't pray like that," Cissy Houston explained. "I give it to God one time, because I know he's able, and I cannot change a thing. So I'm asking everyone to pray to the Lord, who we know can do something about it."

Earlier this week sources told People magazine that many of Bobbi Kristina Brown's family members wanted her moved to the rehab facility sooner than the move took place, but that it was Bobby Brown who wanted to wait longer. He clearly isn't ready to give up hope on his only child.

Cissy Houston has the kind of faith that Christians everywhere admire. She knows that God hears her, and she knows that His ways aren't always the same as hers--and that's okay.

"If he works a miracle, thank God," she said during her radio interview. "If it happens the other way, I'm all right."

Do you think the family of Bobbi Kristina Brown is starting to realize that the chances of a miracle are growing even less likely with every passing day? Will Bobby Brown ever find the resolve to remove Bobbi Kristina from life support if doctors say there's nothing more they can do?

And what will that mean for Nick Gordon--Bobbi Kristina Brown's boyfriend, who is presently in rehab--if and when that decision is made? Will he get to see Bobbi Kristina before she is gone?
