If one mixes up the standard prayer lines brough in the title, should one correct it, or should one continue? If it depends on context, is there a principle to help guide one as to which contexts one corrects and which one continues?

Correcting it would mean saying the prayer as intended, but if that's not a me'akev difference (a difference that matters), then it might be considered unnecessarily saying Hashem's Name.

  • Why do you ask about this particular set of mistakes? Some reason to think it'd be different from the general case?

  • @DoubleAA what's the general case? Anyway, believe my second paragraph was my attempt to anticipate and answer your question :) It might not be a me'akev enough difference to warrant a repeat of Hashem's Name

    in the Refa'ainu beracha in the Amish, one of my siddurim has (in the passage for adding names ) אֱלֹהַי וֵאלֹהֵי אֲבוֹתַי and the other has אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ וֵֽאלֹהֵי אֲבוֹתֵֽינוּ So I guess I can say ​either without it being a mistake.
