Miley Cyrus' younger sister Noah has asked fans to keep her family in their prayers amid news of her parents' divorce.

Mum Tish filed papers to end her 19-year marriage to country singer/actor Billy Ray Cyrus this week (begs10Jun13), citing irreconcilable differences, and 13-year-old Noah Cyrus has been caught in the middle of the fight, with Tish requesting full physical and legal custody of the teen - their only minor child - in addition to spousal support and legal fees.

The youngster turned to her fans for support on Thursday (13Jun13), shortly after news of the divorce proceedings broke, simply writing, "Please pray for me and my family."

Billy Ray had previously kicked off divorce proceedings in 2010, but the couple - parents to five children, including Miley and Noah - quickly reconciled and he later dropped the request.
