This is a question mainly for the polytheists who worship more than one God/dess, but it's a bit of clarification about deities' practices with people.

I recently had some, ah, romantic trouble, shall we say, and I was obsessing over it just a little bit (read: a lot).  I was confusing myself even worse than the issue itself was confusing me, and I think Manannan finally got well and truly over my whining, and realising that I wasn't going to work the problem out on my own, called in Aenghus to help out.  I worship both Gods, but Manannan is my patron.  What ended up happening was that Manannan lent me to Aenghus for the week, while Aenghus helped me work out the issues.  Afterwards, I lit a candle for Aenghus and thanked Him specifically for the help.

So does anyone else get involved in cosmic games of Catch like this?  If you worship one main God/dess, do you ever get passed over to another God/dess for help?  Is there any etiquette you usually observe in these circumstances?

I did it many times.
My patron Goddess is Aset and patron God Amun Ra, but often I realize that they leave space for other deities to act on my behalf... Very often a truly amazing God helping me is Djehuty (Toth). Anubis help me when I pray to Him too. And many other deities even from other Pantheons.
It is normal to maintain serious relationship with patrons, but other deities should be involved in your life.
It is well known that in ancient world there was no All powerful God. So every God and Goddess have some roles in our mortal lives.

The Greatest One, Slayer of evil serpent - the opponent of Majestic Ra, bless all of us...
