Cissy speaks out. Bobbi Kristina Brown's grandmother Cissy Houston broke her silence about the R&B scion's current condition as Brown remains in a medically induced coma in a new radio interview on Wednesday, Mar. 25.

Whitney Houston's mother, 81, thanked Bobbi Kristina supporters for their continual prayers while speaking to New York radio station WBLS FM 107.5. "I feel every bit of it," Cissy said of supporters' outreach. "I truly do."

Meanwhile, her granddaughter, 22, remains in a coma, and was recently moved from Emory University Hospital after seven weeks at the world-class Atlanta facility.

"She's the same," Cissy said of Krissy. "We've moved her to a place for rehabilitation. And you know, still not a great deal of hope. [We're] still praying."

Cissy, however, has learned to let go and let God. "I don't pray like that. I give it to God one time, because I know he's able," she said. "And I cannot change a thing. I'm asking everybody: 'Just pray to the Lord who we know CAN do something about it.'"

Houston told the radio station that she's found peace with the situation regardless. "If he works a miracle, thank God," she said. "If it happens the other way, I'm alright."

Bobbi Kristina was found facedown and unresponsive by a friend in her Roswell, Ga. home on Jan. 31, and has since remained in a medically induced coma. Meanwhile, her longtime love Nick Gordon has checked into rehab after struggling with thoughts of suicide, and drug and alcohol abuse.

It was revealed during Gordon's recent "out of control" intervention with Dr. Phil that he and Bobbi had argued hours before she was found in the bathtub. Gordon alleged that he has been struggling with guilt ever since that afternoon.
