Kloots took to her Instagram Story on Wednesday to ask her followers for "mega-prayers" after sharing that Cordero's recovery has taken a turn for the worse.
"Nick has had a bad morning," Kloots said in a video from her car. "Unfortunately, things are going a little downhill at the moment. So I am asking again for all the prayers, mega-prayers right now."
"Please cheer and please pray for Nick today," she continued, holding back tears. "I know that this virus is not gonna get him down. That's not how his story ends. So, just keep us in your thoughts and prayers today. Thank you."

Kloots had shared a positive update on Tuesday, telling her Instagram followers that her husband's "right lung is looking better."
"For two days it's been clear!" Kloots wrote over a photo of Cordero on Instagram Stories. "The left lung is the same. So the left is still causing issues that we need to get clear. Prayers for left lung clearing."
Last week, Kloots shared a major Cordero milestone: He woke up after spending more than a month in a medically induced coma from complications of the virus.
“I asked the doctor today, ‘Can we say he is awake?' ” said Kloots, speaking on Instagram Stories about Cordero while holding their 1-year-old son, Elvis. “And he is awake."
"It's just that Nick is so weak right now that even opening his eyes and closing his eyes takes all his energy," she added. "But he is awake. Yay! We did it."
Despite the progress, Kloots said then her husband was "by no means out of the woods yet."
"There are still concerns with other things," she said, including an infection in Cordero's lungs. "But this news today on his mental status is a win!!"
The Broadway star was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles in late March for what was initially thought to be pneumonia, Kloots wrote on Instagram. An initial test came up negative, though a subsequent test was positive for COVID-19.
Over the course of seven weeks, Cordero faced several coronavirus complications, including a leg amputation and the insertion of a temporary pacemaker.
