What does pray like a pirate mean?

A – Acknowledge – Recognize the movements inside of you and honestly name them. Pay attention to thoughts and emotions. Try to be more aware of what's going on in your heart: self-knowledge is essential for growth in the spiritual life.

R – Relate – Tell God what's going on. Be completely real with Him and don't hold anything back. (If you're angry at Him, let Him know.) It isn't necessary, but it might help to imagine Jesus sitting in front of you as you're talking to him.

R – Receive – Hear what God has to say about what you've told him. (This step is the most difficult.) Be confident that he will communicate with you! Try to be attentive in particular to echoes of Scripture.

R – Respond – Act on what God said. This could be continuing the conversation, taking some action, allowing yourself to be changed, or almost anything.

This is part 1 of 2.
