Britney Spears' mother has turned to God in a desperate bid to turn the troubled first family of pop around.
Struggling Lynne Spears has a lot on her mind - her eldest daughter has twice been hospitalised for mental illness this year (07) and teenage Jamie Lynn is pregnant.
But the matriarch is philosophical about the family's problems, revealing she's hoping regular prayers will turn their fortunes around.
In an exclusive new interview with the upcoming issue of Life + Style magazine, Lynne Spears says, "All I can do is turn to God for answers and just leave it in his hands."
Spears admits she was "a bit disappointed" when her youngest daughter fell pregnant, but now she's resolved to the idea of becoming a grandmother again - and she thinks 17-year-old Jamie Lynn will make a great mum.
She explains, "She really has a way with children - she's a natural nurturer. I just wish she had waited a bit."
And, as for Britney, who was recently diagnosed bipolar amid her custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline, Lynne insists the eldest daughter would greatly benefit from spending more time with her young sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James.
She adds, "I pray for Britney every day to be a better mother. She's gone through a lot of trauma, but she seems to be coming out of it - and it's showing in her relationship with the boys. They're really bonding."
