2002 Ford Focus • 4 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 113,000 miles

For a couple months now when I go to start my car I dont hear my fuel pump if it starts on the first try it dies soon after in less the fuel pump comes om and I can hear it. If it doesnt start I turn the key a few times on and off and when I hear the fuel pump come on it starts perfect, and once it starts it runs great no problems im pretty sure my fuses are good and I hear the relay switch click and I dont think its my fuel pump cause when it comes on the car runs great for as long as I want 2 drive it only gives me trouble when it sits for 3 hours or more what could b the problem and I also have tried resetting the fuel shut off no luck any help would b greatly appreciated
