truck starts then dies

I have a 99 f 350 flat bed that I use as a work truck , i dont use the truck everyday . it had been sitting for about a week, i jumped in it and it took three tries to get it it started and it was running rough jerkin around but finally smoothed out and i went on to work. I drove the truck for about to more days and the water in fuel light came on so i drained the fuel filter several times and the light is still on. Now its hard as hell to crank and it will only run for about 20 sec then it dies, and the temperature has been teens to high 20s can anybody help me out please

put some diesel 911 in it and change out the filter, try plugging it in and then starting it, if it wont run long enough to get some of the diesel 911 in the lines, spray a little wd-40 and it should run.
