If you think you need an exciting prologue because nothing exciting happens in your book for 5 chapters...what you need is 5 new chapters.

Adding to this, if you insist on including the five pages from the middle of the book in your query instead of the first five pages (as requested), you need a new beginning. If you can't win a reader over in the beginning, it doesn't matter how great pages 110-115 are. #querytip
