I don't know, but I imagine it is just a matter of faith. I'm not sure I'm even comfortable with saying something is the will of God, unless it is specifically stated in one's religion as being so (in the Bible, for instance), but I think it's great to pray for God's will to be done. One should never intentionally try to go against God's will.
