Good morning, first thing to do is verify if you are loosing fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge, you could have a problem with a weak fuel pump which was a common problem on this model year focus. Followed by a diagnostic check for codes with a scan tool to see if there is any other subsystem issues which could be causing the engine to stall such as an engine vacuum leak/lean codes which could be associated with a weak fuel pump and so on.
