Who is deciding cont.

As the Tanya writes, there is a battle between the Divine soul and the animal soul over who will control of the person, the question is: Who is deciding which path to follow?
In the quoted piece of Tanya it says that it is being contemplated by the brain and than Hashem helps the Divine soul win. It seems that the main effort of the brain is to cry out to Hashem for help and Hashem helps us win over the evil inclination.
Whenever we are challenged by the evil inclination we should not attempt to fight him off by ourselves, our main effort should be to cry out to Hashem for help.
