comment Useshuva Usefillah Utzedakah maavirin es roah hagezeira, where is this from?
I would like to propose that the order has to do with the time of the year. During Rosh HaShana and Yom Kippur when it is a time of Teshuva, it first says Teshuva, and when Rabbi Lezer said this it was during a regular time where Tefila came first.

@AdamMosheh - Then why did Rabbi Lezer say it differently?

comment Bracha of V'Lamalshinim
I am not sure what you are attempting to point out. If anything it makes my question stronger as we see that Rabbi Yehoshua ben Levi was unable to curse the Tzeduki and Rabbi Yehoshua ben Levi said that he sees that they do not want him to curse this Tzeduki from Shamayim.

comment Bracha of V'Lamalshinim
This does not answer the question. Why did he not introduce this Bracha with a request for them to repent?

comment Does one sit shiva for someone he killed?
I know that this answer might be different in a case of clear actual murder. However I think it sheds some light on the question and that it was worth adding it in.
