On a cold, wet night sixteen years ago...

So begins Dumbledore's introduction to the incident that produced the prophecy of Harry's fate....
The one with the power to vanquish the dark lord approaches....Born to those who have thrice defied him, born as the seventh month dies...and the dark Lord will mark him as his equal, but he will have power the Dark Lord knows not...and either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live with the other survives.... The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord will be born as the seventh month dies....
From this prophecy and Dumbledore's subsequent explanations, we learn that:
  • Voldemort knew that a child would be born that would challenge his power...but it could have been either Neville Longbottom or Harry Potter...

 

  • but by coming after Harry, Voldemort sealed Harry's fate--the scar is Voldemort's mark...

 

  • we already knew that there was a power within Harry that Voldemort hates and despises...Love and Compassion

 

  • Harry is the only person who can kill Voldemort forever...but Voldemort doesn't know this. And as long as Voldemort doesn't know this, then he is still kept in check to a degree. And he doesn't have an immediate motive to kill Harry except for his own pleasure...a Very Important Fact!
