Search Text contains instead of equals

I have some content on my site, a news article named "Living Well" for example, and if I search for "Living" or "Well" (not case sensitive), I'm able to find the news article. But my big problem is if I search for "ing" I get nothing in return.

How do I change the search from returning only results where the words are equal instead of where the word contains my search text?

For our search functionality we use Lucene, which supports wild card queries( * and ?). For example searches for book* will find documents containing terms such as book, bookstore, booklet, etc. Searches for mi*pelling will match both misspelling as well as mispelling. Searching for  Bra?il will match both Brasil and Brazil.
