    I think that the way I’ve often been taught about prayer in Western Christianity is a focus on the individual instead of collective, and I think the last few years have challenged me to think about / work through some of the awkwardness you’ve described in learning how to pray as a “we”. My PCA church was the first place I ever had seen collective confession done, sometimes in moments of collective confession I feel my heart saying “well I don’t struggle with this sin” but then it pushes me to think about my participation in community and how there are those who are needing to confess this sin, and in confessing it alongside them, we are shouldering a burden together to repent and heal. It’s pushed me to grow in thinking about collective sin and praying for collective healing/justice etc.
