Halacha - tefila
Submitted by baruch  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

An excellent question that is asked by the Tosafos Yom Tov and Pri Megadim and they give no answer. The Gra and Kaf haChaim say that it is based on Kabbala, and I'm afraid I can't help you understand their reasoning. The bottom line is that the Gemorra, Rif, Rosh, Tur, Shulchan Aruch and Arizal all quote this beracha in past tense, and this is the way we say it.
