Los Angeles, Oct 29 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Billy Ray Cyrus is praying the court to grant him joint custody of their three minor children after their divorce. The most famous child of Cyrus and Tish, Miley Cyrus will turn 18 next month and before that happens, Cyrus is praying the court to grant him a joint custody of her and her two other siblings as well.

The pair broke the announcement of their impending divorce this week citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the breakup. They have been married for 17 years now and it seems the divorce is now inevitable. Cyrus filed the divorce papers on Tuesday in Tennessee.

In the appeal seeking for joint custody of the children, Cyrus urged the court to allow him to “share the care, custody and control” the three minor children that the pair has between them. The court papers however failed to mention the three other grown children of the couple that were conceived from previous relationships.

Cyrus knew the task ahead of him and the difficulty his children will be going through and urged his followers on Twitter to offer him all the prayers they can come up with. He tweeted that, “Can I ask for your prayers this morning for my children… our troops… the hungry… the sick… the homeless. AMEN”.
