We believe our success and sustainability in ministry comes through prayer.  Our desire is to have a team of people who will pray regularly and specifically for MAI’s staff, ministries and participants.  Consider asking your family, small group, or church to pray for the needs described below, or participate in a prayer walk through an Urban Eagles neighborhood, and praying over the kids when you are with them.




  • Praise for God’s faithfulness and constant provision.
  • There is good spiritual growth in the men and women on the teams.
  • An excellent Charlotte Urban Eagles’ camp where several boys decided to follow Christ!
  • For an excellent Mega Tour where many decisions were made to follow Christ!
