You should definitely buy a Sara Sword (Not Sara Godsword) for Strength training. As for training Defence a Whip is probably your best option. Godswords are too slow for effective Combat XP but are useful for Slayer and Bosses.
Don't buy a godsword. For slayer, sgs uses about 55mil (around i cant reember the price exactly) and you don't need it's spec, because most of slayer tasks offer no challenge that you need such potent healing source. EE + bunyip works just as good.
For bosses, even worse. Take graardor for example. People like to say sgs is good, or ags aswell. But they are awfull. Graardor has a huge defence to actually grant you a high hit for sgs, so the best way to use it would be at minions. But with minions you can easily soulsplit. If you can't, you can get a EEE for 10 times less cash and as good results (because its always reliable 400hp healing). The prayer is hardly a problem in there. If you spent half and got claws, you'd make more kills aswell, even considering that you wouldn't have the sgs healing.
Only buy a godsword if you don't got cash to spend in other things (like taking bgs to corp for example).
About the weapon: saradomin is always the best option for strength, especially because you can sell it later, but it won't make a huge difference if you use a korasi or d scimmy. But since you got 50mil, sure why not. For defense, whip totally. Remember aswell that using super pots save you loads of times in the run. About monsters, the best option is armoured zombies, which require the quest defender of varrock (sorry cooking dinner atm can't link lol). Gl
