truck stalling

So I was driving down the highway and she shut off... so i pulled over tried to fire her back up and nothing. I leaned over and hit the fuel reset under the dash. and it fired back up. Also wouldnt start after sitting for about 2 hours, hit the reset and it fired up... Could this mean my fuel pump is going bad??

Uh , 'cause you have to keep resetting it ?
They should only trip after a crash or very large jolt.
It appears after they trip a couple times they get weak and trip randomly.
