Yes, i still do the sign of the cross... i don't think there is anything wrong with that... even if it is not stated in the bible... we have our own way of praying... and for me... the sign of the cross is a form of short prayer already...

that's how i see it too. (aside from seeing it as a formal start and end of a prayer) when i see people doing the sign of the cross, i think that they thought of God even for a split second. =)

Yes. I also make the sign of the cross everytime I pass by a church or a cathedral.

i guess it's our traditional way to pay respect to our church, religion and God. =)

Nope never have been a catholic and never will be. I am of a protestant faith. I worship in spirit.

If I am in a church I will make the sign of the cross during prayer. If I am just at home, outside, or anywhere else I don't. In my day to day life, I don't think of prayer as just a small segment. I like to think of it as continual dialog with God. For me, prayer doesn't end with the Amen. God hears your thoughts 24/7.

No, I don't since I became a born-again Christian. It's not mentioned in the Bible to make sign of the cross whenever you pray so I removed that practice. I do the same thing on praying to statues because God prohibited that and calls it idolatry.
