Our tradition teaches that we are obligated to pray three times a day — in the morning, the afternoon and the evening. It is said that this tradition started with our patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Each of them introduced the timing of a different service and Abraham specifically, the morning.
As we read in the Babylonian Talmud Berachot 26b, Abraham instituted the morning prayer, as it is stated "when Abraham came to look out over Sodom the day after he prayed on its behalf: and Abraham rose early in the morning to the place where he has stood before God" (Genesis 19:27) and from the context and the language the verb standing means nothing other than prayer.
