Getting the prophecy wasn't important to Dumbledore and the Order, but
why should that mean that the prophecy itself wasn't important?
Remember, this is Dumbledore we're talking about. He's usually a few
moves ahead of Voldemort, and he always tells less than he knows.
Let's look at it from Dumbledore's point of view. His big problem,
other than Voldemort, is that Fudge and the Ministry refuse to admit
that Voldemort could be back. His big advantage is that Voldemort is
keeping a low profile and postponing his main attack while he tries to
get the rest of the prophecy, which is at the Ministry. So the most
useful thing for Dumbledore is for Voldemort to try and fail to get
the prophecy, until he goes to the Ministry, and then he gets seen and
identified while he's there.
Oddly enough, the best outcome for Dumbledore is exactly what
happened, and it happened because the prophecy was still there to bait
the trap. If anything had happened to the prophecy and Voldemort had
found out, the plan wouldn't have worked, and that might have been
much worse than letting Voldemort hear the rest of the prophecy.
