— -- While Lamar Odom is fighting for his life in a Nevada hospital, the Jenners and Kardashians are asking for fans to pray.

"Please pray for Lamar #ourfighter," Kris Jenner wrote on Instagram Wednesday night, along with a picture from the former NBA star's glory days with the L.A. Lakers.

Odom's close friend Rob Kardashian also took to social media to say, "Praying nonstop for my Brother !!"

Kourtney Kardashian posted a sweet throwback of Lamar and her son Mason. "Believing in the power of prayer for this beautiful soul."

Kylie Jenner also posted something later in the day, writing "Let's dance again together soon. Prayers up for Lamar please."

The well-wishes come after workers at the legalized brothel where Lamar Odom was found unconscious told 911 dispatchers that the former basketball player had been using cocaine and sexual enhancement drugs in the days before the incident, police said Wednesday.

When rescuers arrived, he was "unconscious but breathing," police added in a news conference Wednesday night. "He had blood coming from his nose and mouth along with a white substance," authorities added.

Odom had been staying at the ranch since Saturday. He is now being cared for in a Las Vegas hospital and former teammates like Kobe Bryant have stopped by for support. Khloe Kardashian, his ex, is also at his bedside, Rev. Jesse Jackson said Wednesday.

Odom had been married to Kardashian since 2009, but the two filed for divorce four years later. The papers were signed by both parties earlier this year.

Editor’s Note: This story has been corrected to clarify that the reports that Lamar Odom had been using cocaine and sexual enhancement drugs came from callers to 911 dispatchers.
