As a matter of fact, I feel affinity with Morgan Le Fay. As she is not a Goddess (or is she?), it would feel easier to approach her than a lofty, elevated deity. However, I don't know if it would be right to approach her with prayer, if she's not a Goddess. I'm a bit clueless about what to do. Perhaps I should just follow my instincts. I believe she would listen, if I prayed to her. And she might tell me, how she wants to be honoured or worshipped.

Interesting, I suppose it does make sense that it might feel easier to approach a deified non-deity (LOL... someone help me out with terms here!! This is ridiculous... Cheesy) than to try to begin a relationship with a deity.

I would think that studying the lore around her might give some clues as to how to approach her... and perhaps approaching her as one does an Ancestor would be appropriate, and then just follow her cues if she gives any. For many Celtic and Norse Pagans (and others, I'm sure) connecting with and honoring the Ancestors is as much or more a part of their religion as deity worship, so there's nothing incorrect about trying that route. I don't know much about Morgan le Fay, personally, others may have better insights.
