MANILA, Philippines—(UPDATE) The condition of former Philippine president Corazon Aquino, in hospital for colon cancer, has deteriorated, her daughter said in a televised interview Monday.

Prayers have been said across this mostly Catholic Southeast Asian nation for Aquino, 76, who has been hospitalized for the past month.

“This is the hardest time for all of us,” Kristina Bernadette Aquino told ABS-CBN television. Aquino’s daughter wept as she outlined her mother’s condition. “She is in pain already, so please pray for her so that it could be lessened.”

“We don’t know how many more hours, days, and weeks God will give her, but please help us pray that my Mom won’t suffer too much pain,” she said.

Over the past four weeks, Aquino’s friends and former officials have been rallying support for the family, which has appealed for the public to give them private space.

A spokeswoman for the family earlier said Aquino had given up all medical intervention including chemotherapy and was leaving her fate to God.
