I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-3 (New International Version)
Now's a great time to teach your kids about the power of prayer!!!
Oh, and a little unit on personal finances wouldn't hurt either :-)
