The Duggar family is asking for prayers after suddenly losing the family matriarch, Mary Duggar, on Sunday.

“Counting On” star Jill Duggar confirmed the news on Instagram, revealing that her grandmother’s passing came as a shock. She wrote on Instagram:

My heart breaks.  My grandma died suddenly today! She was an amazing woman of God and such a great example to so many!  Grandma, you are greatly missed by all who knew you!

Jill continued:

She was a feisty, incredible woman who always took the time to talk about Jesus with everyone she knew! I know she was ready to check outta here and get her new body in heaven before the old one started giving her too much trouble! We miss you so much!!

The 28-year-old added that Mary was “#safeinthearmsofjesus.”

The grandmother was featured on TLC’s “Counting On” and “19 Kids & Counting,” according to an official statement from the Duggar family on Facebook.
