“Peter sent them all out of the room; then he got down on his knees and prayed. Turning toward the dead woman, he said: “Tabitha, get up.” She opened her eyes, and seeing Peter, she sat up. He took her by the hand and helped her to her feet. Then he called the believers and the widows and presented her to them alive. This became known all over Joppa, and many people believed in the Lord.” Book of Acts: 40-42
