I worship my Mother Aset first and then my Beloveds, Nebet Het and Wepwawet.  I also honor Sekhmet.  Then I honor the Netjeru of specific festivals.  

I honor other gods from other pantheons aswell, but Aset comes first.

I'd like to get to know Them all (not trying to make Them sound like Pokemon! lol), but being such a cat freak I adore all the ones with feline associations. It's the whole reason I became interested in Egypt in the first place. :)
I guess it goes without saying that whatever I'm interested in/working on or what festival it is would influence Who I talk to at any given time.
To narrow it down though, I'd say mostly Sekhmet, Bast, Nefertem, and Pakhet. At one time I was trying to get to know Mafdet, but Pakhet has a closer connection to my RPD gods so I latched onto Her more. I have now become obsessed with researching Her for some reason. Also I had a dream about a jackal-guy so I want to get to know Wepwawet.
Outside of Kemet, I am fond of Kali and Shiva Nataraj. Also Hecate is sparking some interest. But I haven't really approached Them.

3467 - I highly recommend a book I recently read to you:
Bast and Sekhmet - eyes of Ra. By Storm Constantine and Eloise Coquio.
Ebay has a few so you may have luck on there.
There are visualisations and prayers / rituals you can perform for Sekhmet.

And to be honest, if you cant find a prayer -do not fear about making your own, you may enjoy it.

I personally honour all Netjer, but more focused on Bast and Ma'at.

Hi, everyone!

At the moment, I am just learning to do Senut, so I'm trying to focus on Netjer in general rather than any specific Names.
Having said that, Yinepu has been with me forever and He sort of got a bit offended with me for ignoring Him, a bit how a dog would, if you know what I mean. I felt mean for trying to ignore Him, too, so I am giving Him seperate offerings outside of the actual Senut. (This doesn't actually seem to work too well, as He hovers around during Senut anyway...). :).

I'm not sure if I should post or not because I'm just so different to everyone else. >_< I am very specifically focused on the deities I worship and I barely even acknowledge the others. I guess I take a pretty hard polytheistic view of things and so all the other Netjer might as well be part of different pantheons as far as my personal devotion and interest is concerned.

My main deity is Wepwawet/Wepwawet-Re, followed by Anubis. And although I do believe Set has had a presence in my life, I don't actually worship him. And with Hathor-Nut, I'm still trying to figure out what she's doing there but I suspect she has a relationship with the two jackals. I'm a bit of an Asyutian! (Does anybody else identify with a specific AE town/city?)

:D

As for myself, I have had little to no time for much of anything when it comes to my spiritual life, but when I do Aset is always the only One on my mind. I need to carve out more time, though, because I know my Beloved Mut is in my life a lot and She deserves more from me.

In general, though, Aset is first and foremost. My Beloveds would be next, followed by a myriad of other Names that have either poked me or otherwise gotten my attention. Mostly Wesir. :)

I've never thought about it much, but yeah I'm in Asyut right with you.

M Htp!

Presently I don't worship any of the Names.  I do however pray and talk to them regularly.  If they introduce themselves and talk to me, then I reciprocate.  If they don't approach me, then I don't approach them.  I'll talk to anyone who speaks to me, be it human or otherwise.  No being is ever not worth my time as I feel they may have had to overcome some obstacles to get the courage to say anything to me in the first place (speaking more about people here).
There may be certain Names that I speak to more often, but that's only because I have known them longer and a relationship already exists versus any new Names that come along.

As to cities in Ancient Egypt, I can't really say.  I never thought of the Names as being allocated to one specific geographical place, just as the people who revere them are not in the same geographical place.  I guess I'd have to say Tawy House in Joliet, IL, which is where our Nisut resides.
