if the pump is working correctly, it can either be, need more water to prime it, or something in the well, such as low water, plugged filter, etc....sometimes when you have a system that is intermittently used, it can take 20 or 30 minutes of continuous priming to get it to pull, enough water to maintain the prime.

SOURCE: air in lines
SOUNDS LIKE A CRACKED SUCTION STUB OR LOOSE THREADED FITTING SUCKING IN AIR.
OR THE CHECK VALVE IS FAILING AND ALLOWING THE WATER TO LEAK BACK SLIGHTLY OR ALL THE WAY BACK. YOU CAN ALSO ADD A FOOT VALVE AT THE END OF THE PIPE.
LONG SHOT, BUT THE BLADDER TANK IS CHARGED WITH AIR AND MAY HAVE A HOLE IN THE BLADDER CAUSING THE TANK AIR TO ENTER THE SYSTEM. SHOULD RUN OUT QUICKLY THOUGH. HOPE THIS HELPS, JODY

The pressure tank must have a certain amount of air in it so pump doesn't cycle as you say. The new pressure tanks have a bladder that separates air from water and keeps the pump from cycling so much. Make sure your pressure switch on the pump is OK--ie doesn't have burned contacts!

It is possible that sediment has clogged the opening that supplies the sensing pressure to the switch. Shut down the pump, open a valve to drop pressure completely, remove the tube where it enters the pump body and stick a small wire just into the hole, once that is clear, see if you get water to come out when the pump is activated. Next, you can see if the entire sensing tube is clear by disconnecting the end on the pressure switch and ensuring flow there. Lastly, make sure there is nothing plugging the inlet at the pressure switch. This has a rubber diaphragm in it, so do not stick anything up inside, just ensure that there is no rust/corrosion in the inlet area.

The water and therefore the pressure has to be going somewhere. If you are sure that there are no leaks in the house or outside, then the water is going back into the well. There is a check valve either in the suction line of the pump between the top of the well and the pump or down in the well.
If this check valve fails, it allows water to go the wrong way and back to the well. The result is that you lose pressure.
Secondly, you have to be sure that there are no air leaks between the top of the well and the inlet to the check valve. Leaks in that piping will make repriming difficult.
Write back with more and I'll try to help more.
