Because I like the commander to contribute to the battle after he is done buffing. Prophets get divine blessing unlike most priests and prophet makes the unit free of upkeep. So you may as well pick the strongest, most expensive unit to be the prophet. I also noticed that big armies of strong units don't get chipped away at like they would if they had only a few troops.
