The faith of the woman
Her statement about dogs and masters rings true as a testament of How God wants us all.  We all need to strive harder to treat all forms of life with respect, whether that life is perfect, or it is challenged.  Amen

Although at first Jesus ignored the Canaanite woman, then reprimanded her, she persisted in a respectful way and her humility proved her love and faith.

Why do most christians suffer from many curses when they have reached the utmost level of their faith to the Lord? Are these also tests given by God? If so, for how long do christians sufer such curses?

How did the woman`s words and action show her faith?
The woman`s words and actions showed her faith through being persistent. She knows she was just tested by God with His responses. But the woman was able to wait and beg for God`s mercy. That`s how much faith the canaanite woman has for our Lord. This should have been our attitude over any circumstances in life.

The Faith of the Canaanite Woman

Jesus went out from there, and withdrew into the region of Tyre and Sidon. Behold, a Canaanite woman came out from those borders, and cried, saying, "Have mercy on me, Lord, you son of David! My daughter is severely demonized!"
But he answered her not a word.
His disciples came and begged him, saying, "Send her away; for she cries after us."
But he answered, "I wasn't sent to anyone but the lost sheep of the house of Israel."
But she came and worshiped him, saying, "Lord, help me."
But he answered, "It is not appropriate to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs."
But she said, "Yes, Lord, but even the dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters' table."
Then Jesus answered her, "Woman, great is your faith! Be it done to you even as you desire." And her daughter was healed from that hour.
