After Jesus was resurrected and breathed His Spirit into His disciples, Peter traveled to many cities and raised up churches. There was a woman named Dorcas in one of the cities. Dorcas had lived a good life and had helped many people,. Just before Peter came to her town, Dorcas became sick and died. The people in the town told Peter about Dorcas. He went to her home and saw her in her bed. Peter took her hand and said, “Dorcas, rise up!” Dorcas began to breathe again and stood up alive!
