An Example from the book:
What should we say when we break our fast?
<<Arabic text>>
Allahumma laka sumtu wa-bika amantu wa'ala rizqika aftartu faghfirli
    'O Allah, I have fasted for you, I believe in You, and I am breaking my fast with what you have             provided for me, so forgive me'
If we are fasting, it is sunnah to say this additional supplication before saying bismillah.
