In my siddur I find a list of 6 daily remembrances. But they seem to be out of order, for example Sabbath is last when it was commanded before the incident with Miriam. Is there a reason for this order or is that just the way it was printed?

Please edit in why you think the list is out of order. – Isaac Moses Aug 14 '13 at 16:06

Siddur Rabenui Hazakain 198 says that the order is based on the way it is mentioned in Ahavas Olam and Kriyas Shema.

First is Yetziyas Mitzrayim which is the entire basis of Kriyas Shema.

Second is Har Sinai for the words Uvanu Bacharta

Third is Amalek for the words Lshimcha Hagadol

Fourth is Aigel for the words Uliyachedcha Bahava

Fifth is Miriam for the words Lehodos Lecha

Sixth is Shabbos for the words Uzechartem Es Kol Mitzvos Hashem

He leaves it at the end that the question still remains as to why it is in the order of Birchas Kriyas Shema. Also on the notes on the bottom he questions that this only works according to this Nusach and not according to other Nusachs that say the words in a different order.
