1st book of Kings 17:17-24.

Some time later the son of the mistress of the house fell sick, and his sickness grew more severe until he stopped breathing.
So she said to Elijah, “Why have you done this to me, O man of God? Have you come to me to call attention to my guilt and to kill my son?”
“Give me your son,” Elijah said to her. Taking him from her lap, he carried him to the upper room where he was staying, and laid him on his own bed.
He called out to the LORD: “O LORD, my God, will you afflict even the widow with whom I am staying by killing her son?”
Then he stretched himself out upon the child three times and called out to the LORD: “O LORD, my God, let the life breath return to the body of this child.”
The LORD heard the prayer of Elijah; the life breath returned to the child’s body and he revived.
Taking the child, Elijah brought him down into the house from the upper room and gave him to his mother. “See!” Elijah said to her, “your son is alive.”
“Now indeed I know that you you are a man of God,” the woman replied to Elijah. “The word of the LORD comes truly from your mouth.”
