I had more or less the same problem. It would only happen when the engine was cold. According to the mechanic, the fuel pump was going bad. After replacing it, I havent had it happen to me again, granted its only been a couple of days since I changed it.

Replace engine oil and filter, air filter and fuel filter.
Drain the fuel tank and add fresh fuel.
Remove the spark plugs and put a squirt of oil in each cylinder. Remove coil lead and crank engine until oil pressure comes up.(light goes out),
replace coil lead and start engine.. it will blow smoke for first few minutes. Check trans fluid, brake fluid etc before driving. Theres a good chance the brakes will need an overhaul.

It's possible that it's the fuel pump relay, bad computers or a host of other causes. The first thing I would do is to check fuses #'s 4 and 6. Rotate them in the holder as sometimes they get corrosion on them that hinders good contact.
You can put in a jumper wire from 4 to 6 and that should turn the pumps on and you can then start the car if the relay was the problem. Don't drive around like this as the pump will be on all of the time and it's not safe to have them in this state in case of an accident.
