So, anyways - does anyone have a minor God or Goddess that is important to them? How do you go about forming a relationship with Them when there is such little information available?

One thing I've noticed is that the minor deities are often early or sometimes later forms of more well-known ones. There are several forms of Isis and some of the Greek goddesses around. Or they are similar to forms of divine energy that I am already working with, or of one that is trying to get my attention. For ex., before I dedicated to Kali, I had experiences with two similar deities from very different parts of the world. The first one was Anat, a middle eastern love and war goddess who's iconography is practically the same as Kali's. The other was Ix Chel,  a Mayan moon and magic goddess, who is not terrifically similar, but who was presenting in a way that eventually helped me a lot when I started studying tantra and the Mahavidyas (the Ten Wisdoms, or goddesses, of Hindu shakta tantra). I only recently found out who Ix Chel is, after a long time of dreaming about her and seeing her imagery. It's always a relief when those threads get picked up at last.

I also tend to think that minor deities show up b/c I have a past life connection to them, in some way.

Goddess grant me:
  The power of Water,
  to accept with ease & grace what I cannot change.

  The power of Fire,
  for the energy & courage to change the things I can.

  The power of Air,
  for the ability and wisdom to know the difference.

  And the power of Earth,
  for the strength to continue my path.
