  • Skillet frontman John Cooper said that this song "was just about feeling alone." He explained: "There's a lot about loneliness on this album because when I look around our world with all the things that's happened with violence and wars and... then natural disasters that have been happening, all the people that are feeling alone and feeling that they're going through all these things themselves and they don't have anybody to lean on. So I wrote a lot about loneliness and 'Whispers In The Dark' is about, basically, when you do feel alone and you look around and there isn't anyone around and you think, 'That's it, nobody's there,' it's a song saying I will be there - you may not see Me all the time, but I am gonna be there. That was a very spiritual song in its intent that could be God talking to a person saying, 'It might seem like you're alone during all these hard times, but you're not.'"

  • According to Radio & Records magazine, this was 2008's most played song on Christian Rock radio with 4,505 plays.
