Ps. Merlyn Patta is a powerful, prophetic woman of the Word of God. Having grown up in a Methodist background, in 1986 Pastor Merlyn came to faith and was filled with the Spirit under the ministry of Pastor Patta. The result was an immediate loss of desire for the things of the world and a hunger for God’s word. The Lord has also developed in her a wonderful heart for people and she desires to see their lives transformed. Bringing a valuable prophetic element, the prophetic gifts flow freely through her, giving hope and building faith in all those who hear.
Pastor Samuel and Pastor Merlyn were married in 1988. Ever since, God has continually confirmed the prophetic word that ‘the jug of oil will never run dry and the jar of flour will never run out’. Although they have had some financially stressful times, because they have never touched their tithe or eaten their seed the Lord has provided for them in every situation, as Pastor Merlyn testifies. As a couple they have continually been recipients of the Lord’s favor and blessing, including being blessed with two children, Steven & Deborah.
Traveling with Pastor Samuel to New Zealand and the US, Pastor Merlyn returned with him in 2004 to begin the work of restoring the church in Hyderabad, convinced that where there had been dead lives, God would bring forth new green shoots. It is at this time, God began to release her in the Word of Knowledge. She has seen many people dramatically healed, set free and caused to prosper as the word has been released over their lives.
God has raised up Pastor Merlyn to stir the people of God in worship through scriptural exhortation, and to release the prophetic word over the congregation. Having a heart for people, the Lord has also used her in counseling and encouragement to many individuals. She also hosts a TV show entitled ‘Look What The Lord Has Done’, in which she interviews people as they testify to the goodness of God in their lives. Pastor Merlyn has been blessed and has become a blessing in the lives of many individuals and we know God will continue to bless her and use her in mighty and powerful ways to build His Kingdom.
