Why do some very specific phrases like "Somech noflim, rofei cholim, u'matir assurim" stay in at the beginning of Shabbos Shemoneh Esrei while they are removed from later in Shemoneh Esrei?

Is it because it is describing what Hashem does as opposed to a bakashah? Still, I wonder if there is any commentary why this is so.

  • @DoubleAA I assume OP is thinking of רפאינו... not sure about the others.

  • Thank you. Yes, Refuaeinu, and while others don't have direct parallels in shemoneh esrei,, they are more specific and personal in nature,. However, now that I am thinking about it, we still say somech noflim and matir assurim in birchos hashachar, so perhaps my question doesn't stand?

  • The korban tamid of Shabbos has the kedushah of the korban tamid of the weekday plus the kedushah of Shabbos. The first three berachos represent this common kedushah.
