Liturgy / Prayer Book (Siddur)
#9
There were many different types of sacrificial offerings that were brought in the Holy Temple.

The daily morning and afternoon Jewish prayer services ("Shacharit" and "Mincha", respectively) correspond to only two of these many Temple offerings. These were the two communal burnt offering on behalf of the Jewish people. One was brought as the first offering in the morning, and the other as the last offering in the afternoon. The evening Jewish prayer service ("Ma'ariv") corresponds to the burning of the residuals of the afternoon daily communal offering, which extended into the evening.

Noahides did not have a part in these two daily burnt offerings which were brought on behalf of the Jewish people as a community. Instead, Noahides brought their sacrifices to G-d as burnt offerings of a private individual, on any day and at any time during the daytime which they so desired.

Furthermore the bringing of a sacrificial offering by a Noahide was independent of, and did not take the place of, the Noahide's obligation to pray to G-d in his or her time of need.

If an observant Noahide desires to express his or her acceptance of G-d's Kingship by reciting the "Shema" prayer ("Hear O Israel, the L-rd our G-d, the L-rd is One"), it is appropriate (but not required) to do so during the time when Jews are commanded to recite the prayer, in the morning and in the evening.
