The role of the song in the creation of Voidlight spheres is unknown. However, Navani's research into the pure tones of Roshar allowed her to manipulate Voidlight, even mixing it with other Lights inside of a sphere. The tone and rhythm of the Song of Prayer is therefore likely related to the creation of Voidlight spheres.
Odium's forces are not seen using the Song of Prayer in battle, even when they are running low on Voidlight. It is unclear why this is the case, but Fused and Regals seem to have abundant spheres available to them and it may be easier or faster to simply retrieve more spheres rather than create new ones. Venli knew that singing the Song of Prayer could draw Odium's attention, and did not dare to try and create her own Voidlight spheres during the occupation of Urithiru.
