ur'-li (orthros, and related words; proi):

The word generally refers to the day, and means the hour of dawn or soon after (Genesis 19:2 ; 2 Chronicles 36:15 ; Hosea 6:4 ; Luke 24:22). Sometimes it refers to the beginning of the season, eg. the early rain (Psalms 84:6 ; James 5:7 ; see RAIN). It may also have the sense of "speedily" (Psalms 46:5). The early morning is frequently commended as the hour for prayer.
