A prayer for the twenty-first century woman is written for bass clarinet, two violoncellos and bassoon and consists of eight short movements. The title of the work comes from an article about the plight of a Rwandan refugee family, and each movement suggests an emotion that the family might experience in the course of a day as they deal with the process of survival. The work concludes with a prayer. The work was commissioned by the Composing Women's Festival for Musicwomen Aotearoa and is dedicated to World Vision.
