Praying for the Unplanned

I am a planner. I like to organize and schedule everything. However, some of my best experiences have happened when things were unplanned - surprise late night chats with people, etc. So, I am asking a quick question: should we be praying for the things that are unplanned? There's only so far you can go with preparation - and in fact, you can get so caught up in preparation that you forget the actual purpose (see Luke 10:38-42).

I feel like sometimes God meets me with unexpected, unplanned situations to remind me he is sovereign and has everything under control. And I feel like this is a motivator to pray for things that are unplanned. What do you think?
