Was the car still running when you got up? If not, then the battery went dead. This may have been the last hurray for the battery. Remove the battery cables and clean them. Fully charge the battery with a charger and if it still will not start the engine, remove the battery and have it tested.

Did you change the in line fuel filter? It may have sediment in it that will settle out and allow some fuel to flow. As the fuel flows the sediment travels to the outlet part of the filter blocking fuel flow.

Fuel pump may be giving out or fuel filter is clogged or if your car has a regulator, that too may be going bad. Check all three or have someone do it for you.

Check fuel cap light

This typically means that your fuel cap isn't making a tight enough seal and the tank isn't getting pressurized as it should be.

Will not continue running

You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem to proceed.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, fuel pump blockage, or a list of other things. Is the oil pressure light on ?
If this is a vortec engine, it requires 60psi or more of fuel pressure to run. Have you checked the fuel pressure and is it enough ?

1994 Jeep Wrangler, 4 cylinder, when I grounded the ASD and Fuel Relay I could get it to start and run, suspecting PCM isn't providing proper ground signal to relays etc... but now even when I ground...

Check to make sure the check engine light is coming on, on the dash, when you turn the ignition switch on. If it is not coming on, try leaving the ignition on for a few minutes to see if that light does come on and the jeep starts then. If so, then your ecu computer is in need of repair.

Engine shakes periodically; warm or cold. Bad Coil?

the p 0300 codes gives you the clue
it is random misfires and that is predominately from injector and low fuel pressure
pulling a plug lead will amke no difference if there is no fuel in that cylinder to ignite
bad coils will be a constant miss regardless
try putting a can of quality injector cleaner in the tank to see if that fixes the problem
have a fuel pressure tset done to check for pump, filter or pressure regulator problems
