The Anglican practice of saying daily morning and evening prayer derives from the pre-Reformation canonical hours, of which seven were required to be said in churches and by clergy daily. Matins, Lauds, Prime, Terce, Sext, None, Vespers, and Compline. Prayer started at dawn and finished at midnight.

This practice derived from the earliest centuries of Christianity, and ultimately from the pre-Christian hours of prayer observed in theĀ 
Jewish temple.
