Madonna Shares Cryptic Lyric Amid Custody Battle with Guy Ritchie: 'Teach Me How to Pray'

Madonna is in need of a prayer.

The "Like a Prayer" singer shared a cryptic post on Instagram Wednesday amid her custody battle of son Rocco with ex-husband Guy Ritchie.

"Same ...teach me how to pray," Madonna, 57, captioned the post, referencing her song "Devil Pray" from her latest album Rebel Heart.

The same day, the mother of four learned that her 15-year-old child would remain in London with Ritchie, 47, for the time being, where he is enrolled in school.



At a hearing in New York on Wednesday, the exes called into to listen on speaker phone as a judge and their attorneys came to a long-awaited compromise, though they have yet to come to an agreement regarding Rocco's custody.



Rocco has been living with his father in London since December, the same month that the teen was ordered to return to his mother in New York at a court hearing.

Rocco has previously expressed his desire to stay abroad with Ritchie. In January, a source told PEOPLE that Rocco had been on tour with Madonna when he decided he wanted to stay with his father out of rebellion, and because he prefers Ritchie's laid-back parenting style and misses his U.K.-based friends.

Madonna and Ritchie finalized their divorce in 2008, after an seven-year marriage. Together the former couple adopted David Banda, now 10, in 2006. Madonna also has two daughters, Lourdes Leon, 19, and Mercy James, 9.
