Peter Heals Tabitha - A Creative Idea for Sharing This Miracle in the Bible April 06 2018, 0 Comments

The Bible story of when Peter heals Tabitha is one of the greatest miracles in God's Word. I love coming up with creative ways to share the Bible and writing Bible story songs is a perfect way to teach God's stories. Follow along with the words of this song to teach your children that God is a miracle-working God!

I love the story of when Peter heals Tabitha. In fact, God used Peter to do more than heal Tabitha, God used Peter to bring Tabitha back to life! This wonderful story is told in Acts 9:36-41, which says:

36 Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas: this woman was full of good works and deeds which she did.

37 And it came to pass in those days, that she was sick, and died: whom when they had washed, they laid her in an upper chamber.

38 And forasmuch as Lydda was nigh to Joppa, and the disciples had heard that Peter was there, they sent unto him two men, desiring him that he would not delay to come to them.

39 Then Peter arose and went with them. When he was come, they brought him into the upper chamber: and all the widows stood by him weeping, and shewing the coats and garments which Dorcas made, while she was with them.

40 But Peter put them all forth, and kneeled down, and prayed; and turning him to the body said, Tabitha, arise. And she opened her eyes: and when she saw Peter, she sat up.

41 And he gave her his hand, and lifted her up, and when he had called the saints and widows, presented her alive. (King James Version, In the Public Domain)

What a GREAT story! When Peter heals Tabitha, I'm sure there was much rejoicing of all around who witnessed the miracle.

You can help your children rejoice anew at this miracle by sharing the words below to the song I have written.

Here is a video showing a LIVE performance of me performing "Peter Heals Tabitha" at a preschool while using Steve Axtell's Magic Drawing Board:

Here are the words to the song "Peter Heals Tabitha"

Hello! My name is Tabitha, but in the Greek language my name is Dorcas and I love to sew. 

SL: Really? I love to sew too! What kind of things do you sew?

T: I love to sew clothes

Sewing! Sewing! Needle and thread in hand.

I love sewing clothes for children, women and men.

I sew for those with no money to spare.

But because God's good to me they have clothes to wear.

SL: That's wonderful, Tabitha! God has given you an amazing talent that can help lots of people.

T: Oh, yes! Sewing is one of the greatest gifts God has given me. But do you want to know the greatest gift God gave to me?

SL: Of course! What is it?

T: My life.

One day when I was sewing I started to feel sick

I was very dizzy then fell down like a brick

My friends they took me to my bed and found that I was dead

They took me to the upstairs room and covered up my head.

SL: Tabitha, what did you do?

T: I couldn't do anything, dear. I assure you that I was quite dead. But I can tell you what I wish I had been doing.

Sewing! Sewing! Needle and thread in hand.

I love sewing clothes for children, women and men.

I sew for those with no money to spare.

But because God's good to me they have clothes to wear.

SL: Well, you obviously didn't stay dead! What happened to you?

Some friends had heard that Peter was in the town near by.

Two men were sent to Peter while the women stood and cried.

Peter was a friend of Jesus, the Lord he did obey

When he arrived my friends showed him all the clothes I'd made

They said she loved:

Sewing! Sewing! Needle and thread in hand.

She loved sewing clothes for children, women and men.

She sewed for those with no money to spare.

Because God was so good to her we had clothes to wear.

SL: What happened next?

Peter sent my friends out then on his knees he prayed

He said, "Tabitha, get up." And my body did obey.

I opened up my eyes to see Peter standing there

He took me by the hand. I was alive and I was well!

Now, I could get back to...

Sewing! Sewing! Needle and thread in hand.

I love sewing clothes for children, women and men.

I sew for those with no money to spare.

But because God's good to me they have clothes to wear.

SL: That is an amazing story, Tabitha!

T: Oh, yes it is! Even though Jesus had already risen and gone back to Heaven, Jesus heard Peter's prayer and gave me back my life. It was a miracle. And many people in my town of Joppa believed in Jesus because of the miracle He did in my life.

Well, I must be going now! I have more sewing to do! Goodbye, dear!

SL: Goodbye, Tabitha!
