I was having trouble thinking of the right word to use to describe a process that is not rushed.
I suppose I could say not rushed, but I think there should be a single word for it. Also I prefer not to use the negative for my particular use case.
Example: When saying a prayer, one would not be like "ok, lets just get this over with" and proceed to pray really fast. Thus prayer is said to be _________.
I was thinking sacred might be suitable here, but, at best, sacred would merely imply it's not rushed due to its significance. Also, there are other non-sacred examples too. I will need something more general.
