The priest said he performed the 'havan puja' for them so that they can overcome their current problems.
"A havan puja was held for 11 days to please the 'grah nakshatra' and for peace in the entire family," Mishra said.
He said he talked over the phone with Tej Pratap Yadav, who asked him to pray to the goddess. Yadav could not be contacted to confirm this.
"I have been talking to him and the family all through, ever since the present problems surfaced. We held special prayers to the goddess for the entire family to overcome them," the priest said.
Mishra said he got the puja conducted by 11 priests and the 'purnahuti', marking the end of the prayers, was performed on Thursday night.
He told a tv channel that he would not return home until his family backs his decision to divorce his wife of six months.
"Our differences are irreconcilable. I had said this to my parents before the marriage was solemnised. But nobody listened to me then and nobody is listening to me now, the former Bihar minister has said.
