I guess if God really does have a plan then God could guide evolution, and everything else, by setting up everything in a way in which the outcome was predicted and then tipping that first 'domino' and watching it play out.
Of course if this is the case then the universe is deterministic and there is no such thing as free will, only people deterministically programmed to believe there is. There's also not much use in praying, though at the same time no use in trying not to. Nor do you have any choice over what you believe. You're just another domino falling into place.
