You have to admire the deviousness of the kid. She's implying that if mom doesn't let her do whatever she wants, she must be tacitly confirming that no omnibenevolent deity exists, which means nobody will stop daddy from dying.
Imagine using the same logic at home:
"Mom, can I smear bacon fat all over the kitchen and light it on fire?"
"But you said that if God will get us through Daddy's cancer, he'll get us through anything -- including unstoppable grease fires!"
"Good point, my precious angel. Here's a box of matches"
