Prophets cannot predicted. Beyond the fact that they want Sisko alive.
But why would they spare Kira and Kasidy from meeting death on the Xhosa only to kill them shortly afterwards when Deep Space 9 is destroyed? It doesn't make sense.
Hard to tell assuming the Station is not completely destroyed maybe they only wanted one of them dead and they would both be dead in case number one.
I don't see why the Prophets would care if the two women were killed on the Xhosa or on Deep Space 9: in both cases they'd be equally dead at very nearly the same time. The Prophets seem to be parsimonious with their visions, and granting a last-minute vision that didn't do anything noticeable to the outside world doesn't make narrative sense.
