It is an immensely difficult time for Lamar Odom and his loved ones since news broke on Tuesday evening that the NBA star was fighting for his life after being found unconscious in a Nevada brothel. As Odom's former wife Khloé Kardashian — along with Kris Jenner and former teammates — stands vigil by his hospital bedside in Las Vegas, members of the Kardashian-Jenner family are taking to social media to rally around Odom, urging people to pray for him and hoping beyond anything that he will make it through this. In addition to emotional messages of support from Kris Jenner and Kendall Jenner, Rob Kardashian just shared a photo with Odom that documents his prayers for his former brother-in-law.
Sharing a photo of himself and Odom wrapped in an emotional embrace, Kardashian captioned the photo on his Instagram, "Praying nonstop for my Brother !!" It is an important plea from Kardashian, who had a close relationship with with the basketball star when he was married to Khloé. The comments in response are almost exclusively filled with prayer hand emojis and well wishes for Odom.
