On Chanuka, we thank God in the amida (sh'mone esre) and grace after meals

ועל הנסים ועל הפרקן ועל הגבורות ועל התשועות ועל הנפלאות ועל הנחמות ועל המלחמות שעשית לאבותינו בימים ההם בזמן הזה

for the miracles, rescue, strengths, salvations, wonders, consolations, and battles You effected for our fathers in those days at this time.

When lighting the Chanuka lights, we mention that we do so

על הנסים ועל הנפלאות ועל התשועות ועל המלחמות שעשית לאבותינו בימים ההם בזמן הזה

for the miracles, wonders, salvations, and battles You effected for our fathers in those days at this time.

(Versions vary, but those are the ones I see in most nusach "S'farad" prayer books.)

  1. Why is the list of things God did for our fathers different in the two prayers?
  2. Of the things listed in both prayers, their order differs between the two prayers. Why?
