Voldemort wanted to kill Harry Potter because of a prophecy. Voldemort wanted to kill Harry Potter because of a prophecy. Dumbledore was searching for a Divination teacher, Sybil Trelawney had applied for the post.
Voldemort chose to go after Harry Potter when he was a baby to get rid of this obstacle, but obviously it backfired. Voldemort was obsessed with Harry because the prophecy told Voldemort that Harry had the powers to kill him.
Voldemort was not able to kill Harry because Harry was the true master of the Elder Wand. So, therefore, Harry survived. Instead, Voldemort unknowingly made himself more vulnerable by trying to kill Harry since instead, he destroyed the Horcrux inside Harry. And this is all Voldemort’s own doing.
