In fact, the prayer services are also substitutes for the sacrifices made in the Temple in Jerusalem prior to its destruction in 69/70 C.E. The morning prayers (Shacharit) and afternoon prayers (Minchah) correspond to the morning (Tamid offering) and afternoon sacrifices (the second Tamid).
Rather, it derives from the obligation to say the Shema in the evening (the prayer itself says "you shall recite these words when you lie down at night and when you rise up in the morning") hence the Shema is said in the evening and morning, but not in the afternoon.
While there is great variety in the prayers, moods, and liturgies of the various Jewish worship services, there are also structural commonalities which mark them as distinctly Jewish.
