A it is

A maaintains parallelism ( either asking.....or thanking)
Also in this instance, aid in healing seems to be more idiomatic than aid to heal.

B and C are wrong becuase of the "either ...and"
D is wrong because aid to help is unidiomatic.

A for me too.

Besides parallelism, you offer aid in achieving something.

"....asked Goddes aid to heal ....."
where is the mistake? Is it not idiomatic?

A is best.

Asking her aid in healing (action) the ills rather than to heal.
