This twenty years have I been with thee; thy ewes and thy she goats have not cast their young, and the rams of thy flock have I not eaten. That which was torn of beasts I brought not unto thee; I bare the loss of it; of my hand didst thou require it, whether stolen by day, or stolen by night. Thus I was; in the day the drought consumed me, and the frost by night; and my sleep departed from mine eyes. Thus have I been twenty years in thy house; I served thee fourteen years for thy two daughters, and six years for thy cattle: and thou hast changed my wages ten times. Except the God of my father, the God of Abraham, and the fear of Isaac, had been with me, surely thou hadst sent me away now empty. God hath seen mine affliction and the labour of my hands, and rebuked thee yesternight.” – Gen 31:38-42.

We are empowered to bring unrighteous thoughts into captivity to the obedience of Jesus Christ.
There are several successful habits of highly effective Intercessors of which demonstrating dominion is one.
Biblical dominion is defined as the authority and ability that God gave to man in order for him to effectively reign and rule over the earth. Through Adam's sin we lost our dominion and through Jesus' righteousness we have regained it. But even though we have regained dominion, which is the authority and the ability to rule, we still need to demonstrate that authority and that ability in a very real and practical way on a daily basis!
