This presupposes that there could arise a situation that is strictly against God's will. I say that this situation could not arise. If something is allowable in God's will but not preferred by humans (e.g., harmful events to humans), then I think humans can pray to God for a miracle.

In that case, a miracle might include a mistake in our calculations, or more dramatically it might include Star Wars technology being used to avert the disaster, or it might include a surprising situation where another object collides with the incoming rock thus averting the disaster, or it might include the discovery of some form of dark matter that we were completely unaware which averts the disaster, etc, etc.

The key is that the asteroid can only hit the earth if it is within God's will to do so, but some events may require miracles if humans pray for some events to transpire differently then how they appear they will transpire. However, I would add this caveat, the more likely an event appears, the more faith and intense prayer it requires for the expected event to be obstructed by the will of God.

Warm regards, Harv
